Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "access the performance of creeping and velvet bentgrass cultivars in a sward mixed with annual bluegrass when subjected to wear and/or compaction on simulated putting green and fairway turf." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "wear factors at two levels (no wear and wear) and compaction at two levels (no compaction and compaction) were randomly assigned to main plots (5 feet x 55.8 feet [1.5 meters x 17.0 meters]). Reports that "compaction increased bulk density and decreased air-filled porosity of plots that did not receive wear treatment, but had no effect on plots that did receive wear." Concludes that "compaction from rolling produced greater detrimental soil physical and turf responses in the fairway trial than in the putting green trial, most likely because topdressing the putting green turf resulted in more resiliency in the thatch/mat layers. Turf quality, turf density and bentgrass populations for most cultivars were typically more susceptible to wear stress than to compaction, particularly in the putting green trial...Velvet bentgrasses performed better and were more resistant to the spread of annual bluegrass than most cultivars of creeping bentgrass."
