Abstract/Contents:"Our work during the past year has been concentrated on two projects. Gene Nutter has been finishing his thesis problem which is a critical study of the effects of temperature, soil moisture levels, humidity and similar factors upon the phytotoxicity of the crabgrass control chemicals. It will be several weeks before he has this material summarized but we have an assurance that some worthwhile physiological data will come from it as well as some worthwhile development in experimental techniques. Our other project concerns the use of endothal for clover control. Progressing from the material reported in "Golfdom" and in the New York State Turf Association Bulletin we have gradually worked down the scale and are getting good clover control with one and two ounces of endothal per acre. It seems quite probable that with what we know now we can pick clover out of all types of fairways. Our experiments on putting green turf have met with bad weather in most instances so we are so we are not quite sure what the answer will be here. Rains following several extensive tests have ruined the value of some of our best attempts. We expect to bring all of our observations together this winter. Concerning the use of endothal I might comment that one of the outstanding difficulties for its use on golf courses would be the lack of the proper machinery for low volume, low pressure application. While ordinary applications with large volumes certainly do kill permanent turf, the large volumes of water will not increase the apparent injury. Hence, casual trials with poorly adjusted equipment or equipment not designed for low volume, low pressure work may not produce the effect we get with our more carefully calibrated sprayers."
