Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted by researchers at the University of Georgia's Griffin Campus to "study the use of fungal laccase for enhancing the rate of organic matter degradation in thatch layer." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that the study was conducted using Crenshaw Creeping Bentgrass taken from the East Lake Country Club and placed in a pot of soil, with the pots being stored in a greenhouse and given applications of laccase, then after a period of time total organic content and percent organic content were calculated. Concludes that "applying laccase once every two weeks was effective in reducing buildup of organic matter and thatch layer in highly maintained turf, although low activity levels were not as effective.
