Abstract/Contents:"'It can't be done with our current technology,' is a quote that you can bank on. That is the conclusion that has been drawn through review of key scientific publications, conversation with superintendents and the results of two simple experiments at Mesa Verde Country Club. Not only will you be unable to convert a poa green to predominantly bentgrass, but if you have a bentgrass green, you will have a difficult time preventing conversion to poa. These are not unexpected results, just disappointing. Read on to decide for yourself whether these statements hold up under your scrutiny."
"Cooperator: Reed Yenny, Mesa Verde Country Club
