Abstract/Contents:"We investigated mixtures of buffalograss [Buchloë dactyloides (Nutt.) Engelm. 'Texoka' and 'Cody'] and fine fescue species (Festuca rubra ssp. rubra L. 'Vista', F. ovina var. glauca Lam. 'Minotaur', F. rubra ssp. commutata Gaud. 'Jamestown II') or streambank wheatgrass [Agropyron riparium Scribn. & Smith 'Sodar'; syn. Elymus lanceolatus (Scribn. & Smith) Gould subsp. lanceolatus] as a low-maintenance turf with low irrigation requirements and season-long green color and growth. Buffalograss plots in Logan, Utah, were overseeded with fine fescue and streambank wheatgrass at two seeding rates. Plots of fine fescue, wheatgrass, or buffalograss alone were also established. At 50% evapotranspiration (ET0) replacement, fine fescues dominated the mixtures with no difference due to seeding rates. Wheatgrass mixture plots were unacceptable in quality. Buffalograss control plots and mixtures were similar for turfgrass quality in August, and fine fescue controls and mixtures were similar in spring and fall. The mixtures performed well in the low-maintenance turf situation, but dominance of fine fescue over the buffalograss limits the potential of these specific mixtures."
