Abstract/Contents:Discusses the need for recalculating seeding rates of turfgrass due to the wide range in the number of seeds per pound among cultivars within certain species. Describes the problems associated with excessively high seeding rates, including the slower formation of stable turf. Also provides a formula for calculating the appropriate seeding rate for a cultivar. A table provides seeding rate information for a variety of turfgrass species including bentgrass, bluegrass, fescue, and ryegrass.
