Abstract/Contents:"Three Kentucky bluegrass (KB) blends (A, B, C) and a tall fescue (TF) blend ('Houndog V', 'Jaguar III', 'Falcon II', 'SR 8210', 'Rebel III', and 'Mustang II') were seeded in September 1996. Mixtures of each of the three KB blends with the TF blend were also seeded, with TF comprising 90% (H), 50% (M), and 20% (L) of each mixture by seed weight for a total of of nine mixture combinations. The test was planted in two adjacent, irrigated and non-irrigated locations. In the non-irrigated location, TF was the dominant species of mixture H at 71% after one year and 63% after three years. Mixture M consisted of 42% TF at one year and 57% after three years. KB was the dominant species of the L mixture after one year, but declined 30% from year one to year three so that KB and TF were evenly balanced at three years after seeding. Mixture A consisted of an average 58% TF and 41% KB. Mixtures B and C were evenly balanced between the two species. Trends for mixture composition according to seeding rate were similar in the irrigated location to that of the non-irrigated location except that KB was somewhat more competitive in the irrigated location at three years after seeding. In this study, both seeding rate and KB blend affected mixture composition, the extent being influenced by irrigation management. TF was competitive in mixture with KB three years after seeding all seeding rates and in all combinations with KB blends."
