Abstract/Contents:"I have no specific project at this time, except that of the National Crabgrass trials. You now have the data collected for the spring trials and should soon have the results of our fall trials. I shall assume that all of the other personnel working on turf at this station will be sending in reports to give you detailed data on the various projects on which they are working. About all that I can do is mention some of the highlights. Bermuda-bent combinations are producing a fine turf and seem to be able to keep an even balance during the summer months, regardless of the fertilization program followed. A bent turf established on a 12" amendment mixture, was in good condition as far as the grass was concerned after 10 days without watering. The surface of the green was hard, but the turf was not suffering from a lack of water. U-3 bermuda cut at 1/4" is maintaining a better turf than U-3 at 3/4". This turf has received one watering of about 1/2" since June 1, 1951. These are my only observations of the summer. I hope that they can be of use to you."
