Graduate Project: Differences in blends and monostands of Kentucky bluegrass cultivars under a variety of stresses. Currently, I have four studies looking at different blends and single varieties of Kentucky bluegrass under wear, disease, and herbicide stress. For the wear stress study, two soil types will be evaluated. Although the initial plantings will be on native soil, one will remain native while the other will receive topdressing applications over time to a built-up sand capped system.
