Abstract/Contents:Profiles Sowmya Mitra, a turf researcher from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California. Discusses a research project conducted to determine if researchers "could...improve [turf] penetration by using a wetting agent" and to "discover if either the surfactant or a heavy aeration schedule could reduce runoff from a sloped course." Reports that Poa annua varieties are being developed "that might be used alone for putting surfaces." Discusses other projects Mitra has been involved in, including trials on sulfonylurea herbicides, organic fertilizers, and herbicide resistance in turf. Concludes that one of Mitra's main goals is to "make turfgrass management easier for the golf course superintendents, park managers and sports turf growers who have a variety of obstables in their path."
