Abstract/Contents:States that "the wise turf manager has long range plans, short range alternatives, and day to day finesse in counteracting and modifying the extremes which may stress his turf." Explains that "the timeclock, the automatic rain cutoff, the automatic sensitive adjustment of time, have made it possible to counteract the very dry." States that "anyone wishing to have long range good turf should have been, or be working towards good drainage [for very wet periods]." Describes how "aerification, vertical grooving, greensairing, coring, slicing and vibrating" can counteract very hard soil. Discusses how to deal with "very weak grass"; "very contaminated ground"; "very high pH"; "very much thatch"; "very high nitrogen"; "very cold weather"; "very high temperatures"; "very poor information"; "very limited budget"; and "very big rumors." Concludes that "turf managers are able to modify many of the extremes."
