Abstract/Contents:Offers advice for fostering turf recovery from winter injury. Suggests that "addition of a little water-soluble nitrogen fertilizer will help, typically 0.3 to 0.5 lb N/1000 ft2 [pounds Nitrogen per square foot]...If the area habitually dies out, or clearly died out due to something like crown hydration...it may be worthwhile to take corrective actions such as reshaping the green or improving the drainage." Notes that "sodding offers a quick, almost sure success of getting complete bentgrass cover on the green...[but] seeding offers a broader selection of cultivars." Offers strategies for seeding, emphasizing "to prepare the site first to allow good seed to soil contact." Provides a table detailing the impact of sodding on putting green infiltration rates.
