Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to evaluate the severity of LDS [localized dry spot] throughout Arkansas and to determine if LDS occurrence was correlated to putting green characteristics through a state-wide survey...[and] to determine the effects of a commercial wetting agent on a putting green that was severely afflicted with LDS." Mentions a LDS survey given to 96 golf course superintendents in Arkansas and details methods and materials used in a wetting agent study, stating that "the commerical wetting agent Aqueduct advertised as a curative treatment for LDS, was compared against control plots for its ability to remedy LDS patches on experimental putting green." Reports that "of the 16 golf course superintendents who returned the completed survey 38% rated LDS as a severe management problem, while 69% rated LDS as at least a moderate problem." Also reports that "in both runs of the [wetting agent] experiment, wetting agent treatment had little effect on soil moisture...However, water infiltration times were significantly improved by wetting agent treatment in both runs of the experiment." Explains that "these results suggest that the wetting agent may have been mostly absorbed by the turfgrass thatch, resulting in little to no improvement in moisture content of the underlying soil."
