Abstract/Contents:Presents a question and answer regarding whether brown turf might be dead or dormant, discussing potential ways to improve its health and appearance. Suggests that "from a broad viewpoint, there are two general approaches to consider: 1) Overseed the turf or 2) Renovate the turf." Details possible methods of species selection, advising that "seed blends of perennial ryegrass typically work best for overseeding. Although perennial ryegrass establishes easily from seed, you will need to use more advanced varieties to result in more stress-tolerant turf." Explains a method of overseeding that includes fertilizer application, subsoil tillage, rolling, and raking. Suggests to "apply water immediately after seeding or sodding and...[not to] let the seed, seedlings, or sod dry out."
