Abstract/Contents:Discusses an experiment in 1986 in which various fine fescue cultivars were evaluated for overall quality and red thread incidence. Results indicated that "the hard fescues represented here by Spartan, Biljart and Tournament, were conspicuous by their high resistance to Red Thread disease. This, along with a darker green genetic color, undoubtedly contributed to the placement of Spartan and Biljart at the top of the quality rating column."
