Abstract/Contents:"Ultradwarf bermudagrasses (Cynodon dactylon x C. transvaalensis) are the newest bermudagrass cultivars available for putting greens. These high density, prostrate cultivars can tolerate very low mowing heights. However, these cultivars are also rapid thatch accumulators and may be difficult to overseed. Our objective was to evaluate two management programs and two N sources and examine their effect on color, quality, thatch production and overseeding. Six bermudagrass cultivars were used: Champion, TifEagle, Floradwarf, MS Supreme, Tifdwarf and Mobile 9. The high management program consisted of monthly vertical mowing, core aerification, and summer topdressing. The standard management program consisted of 2 vertical mowings and 2 topdressings per year, 1 core aerification per year, and monthly summer spiking. All plots were overseeded with Poa trivialis at 44 kg ha-1 in October. Monthly thatch measurements revealed no significant difference between high and standard management plots. N source had no effect on thatch accumulation, but thatch depth varied with cultivar. High management plots had lower summer color and quality ratings."
