Abstract/Contents:Discusses extended greencover in buffalograss turf. Briefly profiles buffalograss, stating that it "is a low-maintenance, stoloniferous, perennial warm-season species that is native to the subhumid and semiarid regions of the North American Great Plains." Explains that "studies were conducted to determine: 1) the best fine fescue species for overseeding; 2) the effect of seeding rate, date and core cultivation on overseeding establishment; and 3) the effect of overseeded fine fescues on spring and fall turfgrass color retention and turfgrass quality." Reports that "blue fescue is the best companion grass to overseeded buffalograss in establishing a perennial mixture." Concludes that "the results of this study support the potential use of fine-leaf fescue and buffalograss mixtures as a means of enhancing turfgrass quality and extending green appearance when compared to monostands of buffalograss."
