Abstract/Contents:Describes a study conducted to evaluate soil compaction "by using a recording cone penetrometer provided by Don Parsons". Concludes that "compaction is a major limiting factor for root development in modern golf course greens. When the demand for fast and smooth greens prevail, soft greens will not be tolerated. Learning to manage turfgrass under high compaction conditions will be essential to provide a premiere golfing experience".
