Abstract/Contents:"Turf-type tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) development has escalated rapidly within the past 15 years, providing several cultivar choices within this species. TAMU-Dallas was selected as one of the NTEP test sites for the evaluation of recently developed varieties and established cultivars. As part of the NTEP evaluation, a test of cultural methods, with emphasis on mowing height, was designed." For all years included in the study, quality ratings for the 1.5 inch mowing height were lower than for the 2.5 inch height, indicating that reducing mowing heights for tall fescues may not be desirable. Some of the entries with consistently higher quality were Amigo, Avanti, Aztec, Bonanza, Crossfire, Falcon, Hubbard87, Normarc25, PE-7, PST-5AG, PST-5oL, Trailblazer, and Tribute.
