Abstract/Contents:"Winter damage of golf turf is a persistent challenge and reseeding is often a necessary and costly investment to promote recovery and to maintain adequate density and uniformity for play. The objectives of the research were to examine differences in seedling vigor of 12 creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) cultivars in response to two temperatures (15 and 25°C) and two nitrogen availabilities (0 and 10 ppm). The cultivars (007, Barracuda, Declaration, Independence, L-93, Luminary, Memorial, Penn A-4, Penncross, Piranha, Proclamation and T1) were seeded into Petri dishes with an agar medium that was amended with or without 10 ppm nitrogen. The petri dishes were then placed in growth chambers (15 or 25°C) with a 10-h photoperiod and light intensity of 100 µmol m-2 s-1. The effect of temperature on shoot and root growth was not found to be significant. However, as expected, the higher nitrogen availability significantly enhanced the growth of both shoots and roots. The interaction effect of treatments revealed that certain cultivars, such as T1 and Independence, exhibited better growth at 25°C compared to 15°C. However, this was dependent on the nitrogen level in the medium. At low nitrogen availability, there were no significant differences in seedling growth traits among cultivars. The higher nitrogen content resulted in approximately 60% more roots compared to seedlings at lower nitrogen. In general temperature had a less impact on root characteristics compared to nitrogen availability, however, an increase in total root mass and length were observed at 25°C."
