USGA Summary Points:Aggressive verticutting removed a large amount of rootzone material, but much of this debris was not OM. Core cultivation treatments averaged 1.95% OM in the debris removed compared to 1.15% OM in the debris removed from aggressive verticutting treatments. Recovery from cultivation was significantly slower on plots cultivated with aggressive verticutting, and overall turf quality was shown to be very low over an extended period of time. Among core cultivation treatments, decreasing tine spacing did not affect recovery time. The 1-mm aggressive verticutting blades removed nearly as much OM as the 2-mm blades while bringing significantly less debris to the turf surface. Control plots showed a relatively high OM accumulation rate, possibly the result of less favorable conditions for OM decomposition compared to cultivation treatments.
