Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Assessing the population dynamics of turf mixtures comprised of annual bluegrass and individual cultivars of creeping and velvet bentgrass grown on soil and sand-based root zones. 2. Evaluating the influence of traffic stresses on the populations dynamics of individual bentgrass cultivars with annual bluegrass. 3. Identifying the time of year when it is most effective to establish bentgrass cultivars with minimal annual bluegrass invasion. 4. Assessing the effect of environmental condidtions at the time of germination on the expression of annual or perennial biotypes in a sward containing annual bluegrass turf." Results reveal that "the least invasion of Poa annua during establishment was for the June seeding date...the second bbest establishment of bentgrass occurred with an August seeding." Also notes that "Penncross had consistently lower bentgrass population than other cultivars." States that "field trials have been initiated to evaluate Poa annua encroachment into creeping bentgrass and velvet bentgrass cultivars maintained as putting green and fairway turf." Results "indicate that wear treatment has been more detrimental to turf quality than compaction treatment. There has not been a significant interaction between cultivar and traffic treatment." This three-year study began in 1998.
