Abstract/Contents:"After two consecutive years of testing, some turfgrass cultivars are clearly showing signs of superior performance. Out of nineteen cultivars tested the best overall bluegrasses over two years were, ranked in order, Nugget, Touchdown, Alpine, Midnight and America, followed closely by Eclipse, Ikone and Glade. Creeping red fescue results clearly showed a significantly improved performance in the newer cultivar, Jasper, over conventional cultivars. No significant differences were noted between the Chewings and Hard fescue cultivars. However, Biljart and Spartan performed very well in the Hard fescue category. The best Tall fescue cultivar was Bonzai, which performed much better than the four other cultivars. All Tall fescues performed below bluegrass/fescue standards, due to marginal winter hardiness. Manhattan ryegrass was the best performer of the ryegrasses but still performed well below the bluegrasses and fescues, again due to a winter hardiness problem."
