Abstract/Contents:"The natural range of Kentucky bluegrass over the northern half of the United States and southern Canada indicates that it is adapted to cool conditions. ...[Bluegrass] grows slowly in hot weather and, when well established, most vigorously at temperaures ranging between 60° F and 75° F. Some preliminary work, however, has indicated that Kentucky bluegrass, once it has become established, will grow well under conditions which are unfavorable for the germination of its seed and for early growth. In the experiments reported here, attention is directed primarily to the effect of temperature, calcium content of soil, and arsenic on germination of seeds and on the growth of seedlings." Includes: materials and methods, experiments with calcium carbonate, effect of calcium carbonate on germination, effects of temperature and calcium carbonate content of sand on growth of seedlings, experiments with arsenious acid, results with arsenious acid on seed, results with arsenious acid on seedling grass, summary and discussion.
