Abstract/Contents:"Localized dry spot (LDS) continues to be a management problem on sand-based golf course putting greens throughout the southern range of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.) adaptation. The commercially available wetting agent, 'Primer Select', applied at label rate, and an experimental product, 'ACA 1820,'applied at three rates, were examined for their effects on reducing LDS symptoms on a sand-based putting green during the 2003 growing season. All wetting agent treatments improved turf quality and reduced wilt symptoms compared to a control treatment. Application of the experimental wetting agent, 'ACA 1820', resulted in slightly less turfgrass wilt and water repellency compared to 'Primer Select'."
