Abstract/Contents:"Poa trivialis germplasm was planted as an overseed and maintained under a sand-based putting green. Experimental synthetic lines and commercial cultivars were evaluated for establishment, turfgrass cover, quality and spring transition. Seed entries ranged from 15% to 58% plot cover at three weeks after planting. By seven weeks after planting, plot cover ranged from 68% to 92%. Entries were significant for having different turfgrass color, quality, density, texture and uniformity. `Colt plus' had a fast establishment rate, while PT I 93-94 was the slowest to establish. The PT series in general had a darker green color than most other entries. For overall turfgrass quality, the experimental synthetics generally had better performance than existing commercially available cultivars. On average the synthetics had higher visual estimates for shoot density and finer leaf textures. Commercial cultivars were surprisingly less uniform in plot appearance as well. There were large differences for transition to bermudagrass. Mean values for percent bermuda ranged from 10% to 52% by mid June of 1995."
