Abstract/Contents:Discusses wet wilt, "a problem in turfgrasses that is not well understood or studied." Describes indirect and direct heat stress and how heat stress relates to wet wilt. States that "wet-wilt occurs when there is adequate soil moisture yet roots cannot absorb water fast enough to meet the transpirational...needs of a plant." Provides management options for dealing with wet wilt. Concludes that "it is very important to promote soil aeration. Roots need soil oxygen to survive. Greens affected by wet wilt should be solid-tine aerated or spiked, but only when it is possible to safely use this equipment on putting surfaces."
