Abstract/Contents:"This study was designed to evaluate performance (i.e. quality and density) of promising Kentucky bluegrass cultivars at two low mowing heights in comparison with older "standards" of Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. Three replicates of 16 treatments were used and consisted of a perennial ryegrass check; 12 monostands of Kentucky bluegrass; and three Kentucky bluegrass blends (a compact type blend, an aggressive type blend, and a blend containing both compact and aggressive types). The Kentucky bluegrass cultivars were chosen based on performance in the NTEP Kentucky bluegrass trial located in Manhattan, KS. Cultivars that had the best performance compared to perennial ryegrass as well as the older cultivars of Kentucky bluegrass were Unique and Apollo, followed by Award and the two blends combining the compact types. Mowing heights of 14 mm and 22 mm were maintained, but no interaction between cultivar and mowing height was observed."
