Abstract/Contents:States that "superintendents are asking for grasses that produce superior quality and fast putting surfaces, especially during periods of intense use. And with environmental concerns at an all-time high, new grasses need to produce this high quality with less water, fertilizer, and pesticides." Discusses the early history of plant breeding and on-site bentgrass and bermudagrass trials and performances.
