Abstract/Contents:Energy for mowing turfgrass was measured with an electric-motor-powered rotary mower and a microprocessor-controlled electric power/demand analyzer. Mowing energy increased with increased fertilization, decreased mowing height, and increased moisture on the turfgrass, and varied with genotype. A gasoline-powered mower required more direct and total primary energy for mowing turfgrass than an electric mower.
