Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "whether its Poa annua, creeping bentgrass, or bermudagrass greens, invariably they become 'puffy' sometime during the growing season." States that "a shallow root system is characteristic of a puffy green. Thus an unbalanced relationship between tillering and root growth is important in puffiness." Offers potential management practices to control puffiness, including nitrogen fertility, coring, verticutting, topdressing, and mowing.
