Abstract/Contents:"Ten individual grass species and ten mixtures, which were comprised of these species, were seeded at two different sites in June of 1995. These sites were located in Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. Research plots were replicated and larger individual plots were established for demonstration purposes. Two evaluations were performed in July and September of 1995. Results for area cover, which is a good indication of establishment, showed that the fine leaf fescues had the highest ratings. In particular, Aurora Hard fescue, Nakiska Sheep fescue and Dawson Creeping Red fescue showed the best cover. Those mixtures that had high percentages of these grasses included had the highest ratings for the mixtures."
