Abstract/Contents:Explains that installing a synthetic playing surface is often very expensive for educational facilities and municipalities, and examines factors of maintenance which, upon improving, may remove the need for a synthetic field. Focuses on mowing practices, an irrigation program, and fertilization requirements for an athletic field, providing recommendations to potentially improve the field's health. Concludes that "the typical warranty for a new synthetic infill is 8 years."
