Abstract/Contents:"The botanical shoot and root characteristics of twelve Agrostis stolonifera cultivars were assessed both during favourable growing conditions and following a severe hot-humid stress period while maintained at a 3.2mm cutting height near Rolesville, North Carolina. Differences were observed among cultivars at both assessment times in terms of such botanical parameters as shoot density, shoot/mat/thatch biomass, and root biomass. Under favourable growing conditions the root biomass ranged from a maximum of 100g for Penncross to a minimum of 14g for Crenshaw. These same favourable conditions produced shoot densities in excess of 3,000/dm2 for Penn G-2, Penn G-6 and Penn A-1, even when maintained at a cutting height of 3.2mm. Decreases in most botanical parameters were observed in October following the hot-humid stress period, with the root biomass levels ranging from a high of 50g for Penn G-2 to 3g for Crenshaw, while the shoot densities ranged from a high of 3,313/dm2 for Penn G-2 to 1,533 per dm2 for PennLinks."
