Abstract/Contents:Explains that "there are many perennial ryegrass cultivars that exhibit excellent turf quality: dark green color, high shoot density, acceptable heat and drought tolerance, and adaption to low mowing heights" and that "disease resistance is another story, and fungal diseases may cause major problems." States that "bermudagrass is also a desirable species for low-maintenance fairways in the transition zone due to its relative lack of pest problems, and it is at the peak of its growth during the peak of the golf season." Describes why "using seeded bermudagrass has become a viable option for transition zone turf managers who wish to renovate perennial ryegrass fairways," including progress that has been made in "improving turf quality and cold-temperature hardiness of seeded bermudagrass." Explains that "turf renovation often requires herbicide applications to reduce or remove competition." Discusses the use of glyphosate and pronamide to eliminate competition before renovation. Describes the use of plant growth regulators to suppress the perennial ryegrass when renovating to bermudagrass, stating that "application of these products may reduce competition from perennial ryegrass during bermudagrass germination and establishment." Describes a research project "to test chemical treatments to enhance establishment of seeded bermudagrass in existing perennial ryegrass fairway turf" that was conducted at the University of Kentucky's Agricultural Experiment Station in Lexington. Results include that "in both years of the study, Roundup was the most successful treatment in renovating perennial ryegrass to seeded bermudagrass." and that "Yukon survived the winter following renovation significantly better than Mirage." Concludes that "applications of Roundup provide a very acceptable transition of perennial ryegrass fairways to seeded bermudagrass."
