Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted to determine cultural practices that affect ultradwarf bermudagrass performance and organic matter content. Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that an experimental site in Fort Lauderdale, Florida was aerated and verticut two or three times a year, topdressed with a rotary spreader, mowed daily, and visually evaluated and measured weekly for overall quality and performance and characteristic changes. Reports that "depth of mat organic matter was similar among treatments, but mat organic matter concentration was reduced after two years by verticutting and by hollow-tine aerification [aeration] two or three times [per] year." Concludes that "verticutting was considered the best overall cultural practice tested because it provided the highest turfgrass quality and firmest surface and reduced mower scalping and localized dry spot."
