Abstract/Contents:Rough bluegrass (Poa Trivialis .L) is bieng utilized more frequently to overseed bermuda grass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. x C. transvaalensis Burtt-Davy] putting greens and rapid seed germination is necessary for successful establishment. Cultivar and seed lot differences in germination rate and sensitivity to cold may exist. Germination of 10 rough bluegrass cultivars/seed lots was examined in growth chambers at 12-hour day/12-hour night temperatures of 25/15, 20/10, 15/5, and 10/0 °C, but substantial at lower temperatures. When seeded on the bermudagrass putting green, differences in germination among cultivars/seed lots were greater at the last seeding date (average daily max./ min. of 16/2.7°C), than at the first seeding dates (average daily max./min. of 21/6.1°C). Use of blends of several cultivars or seed lots is suggested to ensure the successful establishment of rough bluegrass when overseeding at low temperatures."
