Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of crumb rubber, a topdressing material made from "used car tires that, after removal of the steel belts, have been ground into small rubber particles." Describes research which "evaluated cultural practices that would be ...effective at introducing crumb rubber to the turfgrass/soil interface" of which topdressing proved to be the most effective and "10/20 mesh was the best particle size." Mentions reduced soil compaction and "improved wear tolerance of the turfgrass stand" as main crumb rubber benefits, along with potential problems.
