Abstract/Contents:"Poa trivialis (PT) was seeded at three rates (1.5 lb./M, 3.0 lb./M and 4.5 lb./M) and was compared to perennial ryegrass as overseeded turfs. Perennial ryegrass was seeded at 35 lb./M (standard greens rate). Perennial ryegrass extablished ground cover quicker than PT. It took about four months for PT to establish 87% ground cover at 1.5 lb./M, while the 3.5 [lb.]/M and 4.5 lb./M rates produced 96% and 99% cover respectively at four months. Increased seeding rate increased ground cover and quality. Color was better at the 3.5 [lb.]/M and 4.5 lb./M rates up to February. After that, color was not greatly affected by seeding rate for PT. Perennial ryegrass generally had better overall turfgrass quality scores than PT turfs. PT at the 4.5 lb./M rate had the best quality turf compared to PT at the other rates. PT at the 1.5 lb./M rate did not produce satisfactory quality for a putting green surface, while at the 3.0 lb./M rate, PT produced acceptable quality turf from February through May. Lower seed rates exhibited wider leaf blades and a more variable turf surface for PT. The 4.5 lb./M rate seems the minimum for PT when seeded alone as a single species in an overseed situation for a sand based golf putting green."
