In the genus Agrostis, the four species employed as turfgrasses include creeping bentgrass (A. palustris Huds., A. stolonifera L.), colonial bentgrass (A. tenuis, A. capillaris), velvet bentgrass (A. canina), and, more rarely, redtop (A. alba, A. gigantea). The objective of this four-year study was to evaluate the performance of 29 commercially available bentgrass cultivars under the environmental conditions of central Maine.
