Abstract/Contents:Discusses summer turf management, stating that "the three most important factors of turf management continue to be drainage, drainage, and drainage." Suggests that "managing organic matter accumulation and controlling the macropore space on...putting greens are critical to maintaining healthy turf." States that "cultivation and topdressing are the two cultural practices most often used to control the accumulation of organic matter." Concludes that "agronomic principles, like gravitational drainage, will always be of paramount importance" and encourages superintendents to "manage...putting greens with the thoughts of maximizing macropore space."
