Abstract/Contents:"The present investigation has the purpose to study the behaviour of two cultivars of tall fecue (Safari and Noria) in monophyte cultivation and subjected to different management: tow nitrogen levels (100-200 Kg/ha/year) tow cut levels (3-6 cm), with and without grass-cycling. The research was conducted at the Experimental Farm at Padova University in a split plot statistical design with four replications (sowing: 5/4/99). The turf was mowed with a rotary mower at appropriate intervals to remove one-third of the existing stubble in not grass-cycling theses. The study was conducted from August 1999 to December 2000. The most important result is related to the vertical plant growth (mm/day) that presented important changes from season to season and has been strongly influenced by cultivar (Safari: 2.72; Noria: 3.23), fertilization (200 N units: 3.31; 100 N units 2.72) and grass-cycling (grass-cycling: 4.45; not grass-cycling: 3.01); as consequence there were many differences in the cut frequency. Nevertheless, the visual rating (1-9) showed that high nitrogen distribution (200 units) and grass-cycling practice increase the plants [plants'] color that maintain high-quality turf, especially during the winter season."
