CV = coefficient of variation
LSD = least significant difference
Barcel was used as a check variety
*NSD = F-tests indicate that there were no significant differences between yields at alpha = 0.05
In spring it was observed that some of the tall fescue plots were not quite satisfactory. These plots had sub-optimal coverage of grass exhibiting patches of bare ground, and weeds and volunteer grasses were beginning to infiltrate the plots. Italian ryegrass was a considerable problem in the beginning of the year. Orchardgrass was a problem during late summer. Several plots had to be discarded because of volunteer grasses throughout the year.
