Abstract/Contents:"Interplanting legumes into turfgrass has been suggested as a viable alternative that would increase biodiversity and reduce N fertilizer needs in turfgrass systems. Using a linear gradient irrigation system (LGIS), this study aims to evaluate the performance (i.e., establishment, aesthetic quality, plant species association, and drought response) of turfgrass-legume mixtures. In July 2021, four legumes were interplanted into three common lawn grasses: Common centipedegrass (Eremochloa ophiruoides Munro), "Floratam" St. Augustinegrass [Stenotaphrum secundatum (Walt.) Kuntze], and "Pensacola" bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flugge). The legumes selected included a stoloniferous perennial peanut (PP) [Golden Glory (Arachis pintoi)], a round leaf rhizomatous PP ["Ecoturf" (Arachis glabrata Benth.)], a narrow leaf rhizomatous PP ("Cowboy" (A. glabrata Benth.) and a southern US native stoloniferous legume (Mimosa strigilosa Torrey & A. Gray). The grass and legume mixtures are mowed weekly at the recommended mowing height for each turfgrass species. The legumes perform better in bahiagrass likely due to its open canopy and taller mowing height, but the four legumes were able to persist in the centipedegrass and St. Augustinegrass. After one year, the mixture did not affect volumetric water content levels or turfgrass quality compared to the turfgrass monoculture. Golden Glory showed both the fastest increase and decrease in plant cover during establishment and throughout the season. Due to the lower winter tolerance, drought response, and mix stability of the stoloniferous legumes, the rhizomatous types may be a better option for North Florida and southern US."
