Abstract/Contents:"Perennial ryegrass germplasm was quicker to establish plot cover on a 'Tifgreen' bermudagrass green than that of Poa trivialis when used alone. Poa trivialis alone produced lighter color turfs when compared to perennial ryegrass. Turfgrass color was generally uniform in appearance, however, within each entry. Therefore, color as a selection criteria is a matterr of choice by the user. The turfgrass mixture 'Catalina/Winterplay' (80% perennial ryegrass/20% Poa trivialis) was intermediate in turfgrass color. 'Brightstar II' PR generally produced a dark turf throughout the growing season. For overall turfgrass quality, the perennial ryegrasses generally out performed the Poa trivialis germplasm. The mixture of 'Catalina/Winterplay' produced a very dense turf, followed closely by 'Turfstar Plus' PR, '95-1' PR and 'PT-4' PT. 'Snowbird' PT had the least amount of living ground cover by May 31, which is desirable from a transition standpoint."
