Abstract/Contents:Discusses turf conditions in 1952, highlighting the effect weather may have on damage or loss of grass. States that "troubles multiply when there is an abrupt change to a different kind of weather." Discusses thatched greens, explaining that "where there is too much surface thatch, root are shallow always. The penetration and movement of water is impeded or prevented." Also discusses watering practices, stating that "when there are no roots, water must be absorbed through the leaves so there is little point in spending more than 15 to 20 minutes on a green, or using more water than is required to revive the grass." Mentions potash deficiency and iron chlorosis. Concludes that "the [1952] season demonstrated the necessity for plenty of cupping space, for good surface and underdrainge [underdrainage], and an ideal soil of uniform structure and composition from the physical standpoint."
