Abstract/Contents:Discusses potential effects of dull mower blades on turf appearance. States that "the shredded leaf tips quickly turn light tan in color, giving the turf a brown or light tan cast." Concludes that "it is important to keep the mower sharp and in good operating repair. This will help ensure a quality turf that is less susceptible to disease problems."
