Abstract/Contents:"Eleven overseed entries were evaluated for overall visual performance and ball speed on a five year old `Tifgreen' USGA specification putting green. Perennial ryegrass (PR) turf was quicker to establish than most Poa trivialis (PT) and/or Poa trivialis/creeping bentgrass mixtures. `Saber' (PT) at the manufacture's overseed rate of 10 lbs./M provided the fastest establishment among non-ryegrass germplasm. Perennial ryegrass had darker inherent color than (PT) or mixtures containing Poa trivialis (PT). During the winter, Stardust (PT) was slightly lighter in color than Stardust (PT) when mixed with creeping bentgrass (CB) and redtop (RT). Saber (PT) at 10 lbs./M had the highest turfgrass quality in the fall, but ranked lower in the spring. In general, quality scores were greater for (PT) entries in the fall, while perennial ryegrass (PR) entries had better spring quality scores. There were some differences in rank among perennial ryegrass overseed entries for winter and spring turf quality. Ball speed (roll distance) was significantly different between overseed entries in December, January, February and March but not for November, April, or May. Maximum differences in ball speeds between surfaces was 30% in February of 1996. (PT) entries generally had greater ball roll distances than (PR) entries. Perennial ryegrass had the greatest amount of bermudagrass in early June, compared to Poa trivialis and the other overseed mixtures."
