Abstract/Contents:Reports on a "research project funded by the United States Golf Association (USGA)...focused on developing a better understanding of the agronomic characteristics of sandbased rootzones as the mature." States that the "research was conducted at the University of Nebraska John Seaton Anderson Turfgrass Research Facility near Mead, NE [Nebraska]." Also states that "four experimental greens were constructed following USGA specifications in sequential years from 1997 to 2000." Reports that "after eight years, rootzone infiltration remained adequate for infiltration of regional irrigation and rainfall amounts" and "there was no apparent negative response from the addition of soil to the rootzone."
