Abstract/Contents:"Poa annua L. (annual bluegrass) has received considerable attention as a weed in the golf course industry. Recent efforts have resulted in the development of perennial turf-type annual bluegrass. Objectives were to: 1) collect Poa annua from golf greens in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, 2) evaluate the collection for turf-type agronomic characteristics, and 3) relate agronomic characterization to geographic origin. Greens-type Poas, 200 accessions, were collected from 78 golf courses. Accessions, planted on 0.6 m spacing in a randomized complete-block with three replications, were evaluated for agronomic parameters in 1999 and 2000 field studies, at Pullman, WA. Variability was observed for parameters evaluated, there were correlations between several parameters, and some parameters were correlated with a region of collection. Evidence of semi-prostrate to prostrate tillering growth habit with adventitious nodal rooting, characteristics of perennial Poa annua biotypes, was observed in essentially all accessions. Diversity in the collection will be evaluated in greater detail and in more environments."
