Abstract/Contents:"In this trial twelve bentgrass varieties, one rough stalk bluegrass, one chewings fescue and one Poa supina were compared for quality ratings while being maintained at putting green mowing heights. Data from the first year of this trial showed that the bentgrasses were significantly better in quality and establishment ratings than the other three. Those bentgrass that rated highest in year one were 18th Green Penneagle, Penncross, Providence, Putter and Cobra. Those that rated highest in density at the end of the season (which may give a better indication of quality ratings for mature turf) were 18th Green, Northland, Penneagle, Putter and Providence."
