Abstract/Contents:Discusses a long-term study of golf turf root zones and physical treatments by the New Zeland Sports Turf Institute and states that "the incidence of dry patch [is] one of the key paramaters monitored." Results of the study indicate that "the incidence of dry patch varied depending on the construction method, with pure sand root zones having the highest incidence, and soil only root zones [having] the lowest incidence of dry patch." Lists the treatments of the experiment and states that "the trial demonstrated that the design physical treatment programmes was inadequate in terms of controlling dry patch incidence." Concludes that "1. dry patch can have a dramatic impact on turf quality, if allowed to get out of hand; 2. preventative maintenance methods, including renovation, wetting agents, strategic irrigation and physical treatment, are all important to minimise dry patch occurence; and 3. attempts to take short cuts with construction or maintenance are likely to impact the long term quality of turf. For example, reducing the coring frequency, or look to minimise coring disruption by using mini tyning only, could result in a higher incidence of dry patch in subsequent years."
