Abstract/Contents:"A test was devised to investigate a forced spring transition from perennial ryegrass, back to Tifway (419) bermudagrass with scalping as the main treatment. Scalping of the turf was combined with various nitrogen and aerification treatments performed initially on May 22, 1997. Turfgrass aeration, either with or without extra nitrogen applications, when combined with an initial scalping operation, did not enhance bermudagrass transition by twenty-eight days after treatment (DAT), at the end of June 1997. Turfgrass color, quality and density were adversely affected from initial aerification treatments, especially when combined with initial scalping,[.] The turf recovered best from multiple applications of nitrogen (applied at scalping and again at 7DAT). Turfgrass density (visual estimates) showed that in conjunction with scalping, two applications of nitrogen, totaling 1.5 lbs./month, without aerification, provided a dense turf at 16DAT, which was second only to the untreated control plot. At 27 DAT, scalping + N + N + aerification treated plots had the highest estimate of visual density, eventually showing a benefit from aerification. Scalped and aerified turf alone (no nitrogen) had unacceptable turf density at 16DAT and 27DAT. Generally, two 0.75 lb./N/m applications with aerification proved beneficial over the single application of nitrogen plus aerification, when both turfs were initially scalped. Although non-significant statistically, the additional treatment of nitrogen provided 10% more bermudagrass cover than the single application of nitrogen, for turfs both overseeded and scalped. Scalping alone, plus a single application of N, produced 33% less bermudagrass by June 30, then that of the untreated control."
