Coring is a common cultural practice used on golf courses. The reported effects of coring alone on thatch–mat accumulation have been mixed. The objectives of this fi eld study were to examine the effects of spring and summer coring on thatch– mat thickness and organic matter accumulation in creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.). Turfgrass color and quality and chlorophyll content were also monitored. The study site was ‘Providence’ creeping bentgrass grown on a sand-based rootzone… CONTINUE READING
