Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted by the Metropolitan Golf Association of New York "which focused on methods for the chemical and cultural control of moss in turfgrasses." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that there was an early spring application of hydrated lime. Reports that the hydrated lime application proved to be successful in the spring and the fall and that "the best contributing cultural practices consisted of core cultivation follwed immediately by a sand topdressing to enhance surface drying." Concludes that "the most effective treatment...found was the Scotts Crabgrass Killer which contains a combination of bensulide and oxadiazon," and that this experiment "indicated that chemical control of moss was maximized by key adjustments in the turfgrass cultural practices."
