Abstract/Contents:Discusses possible benefits to having a turf nursery, suggesting that "emergency repair work, due to the ravages of the winter months which are evident on every side as spring opens up, is taken care of at a minimum of labor, time and expense, if a well established and cared for turf nursery is available from which to cut strips for laying wherever areas are so badly damaged that a major repair job is unavoidable." States that "greenkeepers have long recognized the turf nursery as one of the best forms of insurance they maintain." Describes turf nurseries, stating that "usually...nurseries consist of plantings in row form, and also surfaces which, planted broadcast, are kept weeded and cut to be immediately available for use in whatever emergency may arise." Suggests that "it is a good plan for any grower maintaining large turfed surfaces to plant a nursery of the same types of grasses as planted originally."
