Abstract/Contents:Discusses research comparing "locally available commercial sand topdressing to a black dyed sand at three application rates for their effect on bentgrass spring green-up in North Central Indiana." States that "the turf on the research green was a mature stand of 'Crenshaw' creeping bentgrass being grown on a native soil, located in full sun at the W.H. Daniel Turfgrass Research and Diagnostic Center in West Lafayette, Indiana." Results indicate "the applications of either sand topdressings at application rates > 14,700 kg ha-1 improved visual green-up ratings with the greatest effect occurring at the 19,600 kg ha-1 rate." Concludes that "late-season applications of sand topdressings > 14,700 kg ha-1 can be beneficial for enhancing spring green-up and foliar growth than non-topdressed bentgrass. Although no negative effects of this practice were observed it is unclear how this practice might influence player expectations from early season putting conditions, use or winter disease incidence. Excessive, succulent foliar growth and heavy foot traffic on wet soils would negatively affect turfgrass health."
