Abstract/Contents:Addresses the question "do you recommend the use of a spiked roller for greens that are somewhat hard and fast?" Responds "yes, the continual artificial watering followed by constant mowing, plus the traffic of players on and over the putting greens, other than those of a purely sandy nature, in time sets up soil compaction, shutting out life giving air so essential to the multiplication of beneficial soil bacteria." Continues that "under these conditions spiked rolling is absolutely necessary to bring about a better porosity and mechanical condition of the soil."
