Abstract/Contents:"Tall fescue is the most widely used turfgrass in North Carolina because of its excellent heat and drought tolerance compared to other cool season grasses. It is often preferred over the warm season grasses because of its ability to remain green when exposed to cold temperatures. Plant breeders have intensified their efforts in developing improved cultivars of tall fescue. In general, the newer tall fescues are darker green, finer textured, and lower growing than Kentucky-31. A number of studies have been conducted in North Carolina the past several years to find out more about these new cultivars." Summarizes the findings of the studies.
