Abstract/Contents:Presents a study to "evaluate the curative effects, namely turf quality and soil-water relations, of PlanetAir venting in comparison to solid- and hollow-tine core aeration on a neglected golf green containing a thick layer of thatch." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "our study was conducted...on a mature hybrid bermudagrass putting green consisting of separate areas of TifEagle, Tifdwarf and MiniVerde cultivars. The green had not been cultivated for several years and contained a substantial organic layer." Concludes that "in this study, we found that neither venting nor core aeration alone effectively reduced thatch or organic matter in any of the tested bermudagrass cultivars."
