Abstract/Contents:Discusses the maintenance of shaded turf, stating that "it's been estimated that approximately 25% of...turf suffers from some sort of shade stress." Emphasizes the potential importance of both quantity and quality of light to turf health, stating that "tree shade reduces the amount of high energy blue light, transmitting instead mostly the lower energy red light to the turf."
