Abstract/Contents:The first priority with respect to rootzones for growing turfgrasses is water management. The turf manager who can control water in the rootzone has a great advantage over those who cannot. The nutrient status of the rootzone is of second priority. If nutrients are not present in required amounts or are not available to the grass for some reason, then weak turf, poor color and slow recovery will occur. Growth rate, color, leaf tissue analyses and soil analyses provide the means for the turf manager to determine the nutrient status of the rootzone. Cultivation of turfgrass rootzones is critical on intensively managed and used turfgrass areas. Cultivation practices for turfgrass rootzones include spiking, core aeration, slicing and topdressing.
