Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate the effects of lightweight rolling frequency on dollar spot incidence and turfgrass quality grown on sand topdressed and native soil." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that the research area was "divided into three replications and each replication subdivided into sand topdressed and native soil plots; these plots were 54 ft x 86 ft." Reports that "lightweight rolling and sand topdressing programs to suppress disease incidence, provides an alternative to chemical pesticide applications." Concludes that "by reducing pesticides inputs to turf, money will be saved for an already struggling Michigan industry."
