This is the first year of data collection from the fairway height bentgrass trial established in the fall of 2014. The area was maintained at a 0.5 in. mowing height. This is a National Turfgrass Evaluation (NTEP) trial and is being conducted at several research stations in the United States. It contains 17 of the newest cultivars and a number of experimental cultivars. The cultivars are maintained with 4 lb of N/1,000 ft2 per growing season. Fungicides are used as needed in a preventive program. Herbicides and insecticides also are applied as needed.
