Abstract/Contents:Presents a study which evaluates "the effects of blending on disease resistance and turfgrass quality in a creeping bentgrass putting green." States that "L93 and A4 were selected as high quality turfgrasses with good overall resistance. Crenshaw was selected as a high quality turfgrass with low resistance to Dollar spot. Mariner, a medium quality turfgrass, was selected for moderate overall resistance and good salt tolerance. Penncross was selected because of low resistance to Rhizoctonia blight." Quality and disease ratings are presented. Results indicate that "blending has not yet proven to increase quality or disease resistance. No significant differences were observed when all single varieties were compared to the two-way and three-way blends." Also discusses the contributions of the individual cultivars to blend quality and disease resistance.
