USGA Summary Points:Increasing N up to 18 lbs/1000 ft2 improved turfgrass quality on several rating dates. However, higher N rates did not increase turf quality during summer climatic stress periods. Increasing N rate significantly increased clipping weight. Tifeagle provided the highest turfgrass quality during most ratings in southern Florida. Floridwarf [Floradwarf] and Tifeagle were similar in ratings prior to the most intense portion of the southern Florida summer weather period. Champion had the most shoots and Floradwarf had the least shoots. Clipping weight was greatest for Tifeagle and least for Champion. Careful management is needed especially during summer stress periods when frequent verticutting can reduce turfgrass quality. Topdressing had little effect on turfgrass performance in year three. Increased verticutting decreased thatch depth. There were varietal differences for fairy ring. Champion had the highest disease-like symptom ratins in late summer compared to either Floradwarf or Tifeagle. Floradwarf's rating was higher than Tifeagle. Tifeagle had the lowest disease- like symptom ratings.
