Abstract/Contents:Presents the question, "Soccer and lacrosse teams want to utilize the playing fields early in the spring before the grass is actively growing. Is there any way to jump-start the turf in the spring?" Suggests that "there are a couple management techniques that can be used to stimulate early season growth of turf in spring." Briefly discusses fall fertilization and utilizing a turf cover to potentially speed spring green-up.
