Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Determine the performance, mowing tolerance, and pest resistance of 15 experimental and commercially available bermudagrass and one zoysiagrass on a golf green. 2. Determine the effects of vertical mowing, topdressing, and nitrogen fertility on performance, thatch development, fall and spring overseeding transition, and turf quality of five dwarf bermudagrasses." Results indicate that "in general, Champion produced acceptable quality, which increased with increasing N for winter, spring, and summer of 1998." Also, "quality of MiniVerde and overseeded MiniVerde tended to increase with N over much of the experiment," and Floradwarf tended to have a significant response to N throughout the experiment, but rarely reached acceptable quality in the cultivar regardless of N applied. Turf qulaity in TifEagle and overseeded TifEagle generally did not deviate far from a rating near minimum acceptable and demonstrated little response to increasing N. Tifdwarf tended to have a strong response to N during the summer seasons, and thatch did not become a problem in this cultivar." Concludes that "judicious nitrogen management will be important in the management of all these cultivars, but is more crucial in Champion, MiniVerde, and TifEagle. Thatch accumulation was highly responsive to N in all three cultivars." This three-year study began in 1998.
