Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1) To develop molecular methods that will allow us to determine for a mixed population of bentgrasses the relative percentages of the component varieties. 2) To determine appropriate management practices for converting an existing golf green from Penncross to one of the new varieties, using the method developed in the first objective. 3) To compare the competitive ability of the new bentgrass varieties during Penncross conversion." Results indicate that "conversion from Penncross is probably feasible, but that it will take a number of years. Further, it sems likely that complete conversion, in which Penncross is completely eliminated, may not be possible."
