Abstract/Contents:1985 report of 3 tests to evaluate 9 bermudagrass cultivars established from 1978 to 1984 at a Kentucky location. Cultivars are Guymon, Vamont, RS-1(Quicksand), Midiron, U-3, London(Sel), NK 78098, Tufcoat, and Common. Test 1 updates a winterkill and quality study. A Table gives establishment date, spring green-up on 4/24, coverage on 6/19, and texture. Vamont and RS-1(Quicksand) had best green up and coverage with medium texture. Common had worst greenup coverage with coarse texture. Spring dead spot was not a serious problem in 1985. Test 2 and 3 were initiated on June 4, 1985 to evaluate the rate of spread. Four sprigs (approximately 3 inches in length, mostly rhizomes and stolons) and 4, 4-inch plugs were placed into a bare soil plot. Three replications of each were established and maintained at a one-inch height, fertilized with 1.5 pounds of nitrogen per 1000 ft2 per month, and sprayed for crabgrass control with MSMA at two pounds active ingredient in August. Tables provide average spread for sprigs and plugs on 6/27, 8/5, and 10/31. Quicksand and London had best spread for both sprigs and plugs.
