Abstract/Contents:"Large-scale plantings of a mixture of Arlington, Congressional, and Collins bents in many sections of the country have proved the merits of such a mixture. These plantings have been under observation for a sufficiently long period of time to warrant making general recommendations for their use (as) a mixture. The advantages of each grass are outlined as follows: [1.] Arlington -- heat-drought-disease tolerant. It has heavy wear resistance. [2.] Congressional -- has a desirable color and texture; starts growth sooner in the spring; is more upright in growth, eliminating the tendency of the Arlington bent to produce a swirl, especially when cut higher than 3/16 inch. [3.] Collins-- upright grower, eliminating the swirl of the Arlington and adds a third factor (as yet undetermined but thought to be apparently beneficial). It also affords a safety factor in that there are three strains instead of two. [End of outline] So far as color and texture are concerned, these three grasses blend together nicely."
