Abstract/Contents:"Research was conducted on creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris) varieties in 1998 and 1999 to determine a superior variety of varieties in a heat stress environment. A trial was set up at Clemson University containing twenty varieties with each variety replicated three times on a USGA specification green. The paper will discuss five investigation areas which were researched and rated. These include; visual ratings, root mass and two longest roots, plant density and shoot width, speed readings, and re-growth or recovery rates. The trial was maintained with manners consistent to that of a golf green. The green receives full sunlight and is managed using a preventative fungicide program."
