time requiring the use of a postemergence herbicide application for eradication ( Branham et al., 2010 ). The selective control of ABG in cool-season turf, especially kentucky bluegrass ( Poa pratensis L.), can be challenging as a result of limited
Significant differences in iron and chlorophyll content occurred between 25 cultivars and 5 blends of 3 year old, well-established Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.). ‘Adelphi’, 111. 38-17, ‘Sodco’, ‘Sydsport’, ‘Windsor’, and blends of ‘Common’ + ‘Kenblue’ and ‘Windsor’ + ‘Merion’ received highest visual ratings for dark green color.
installation in 2009, plots were planted with 225 ft 2 of locally grown kentucky bluegrass ( Poa pratensis ) sod and 75 ft 2 of additional ornamental plants, including burning bush ( Euonymus alatus ), blue fescue ( Festuca glauca ), littleleaf boxwood
Sods of ‘Merton’ Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) were placed in atmospheres containing 0, 9, 18, or 27% CO2; 0, 2, 4, 8, or 16% O2; and 0, 2, 4, or 8 ppm C2H4. Neither CO2 nor C2H4 toxicity nor O2 deficiency caused sod injury in commercial sod toads. Ventilation tubes inserted in commercial sod toads failed to increase gas exchange and heat dissipation beyond a 3-cm distance.
