Abstract/Contents:"Dwarf bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.) is the most highly adapted grass for use on golf greens in the southern United States. Tifdwarf, and Tifgreen have been the industry standard bermudagrasses for the past four decades, although some new dwarf bermudagrass varieties are now available. Thatch accumulation on these dwarf grasses is the number one problem for superintendents trying to maintain healthy greens. Thatch causes many problems that are detrimental to turf quality. Nitrogen rates and sources have been shown to significantly influence the rate of thatch accumulation in these turfs although it is recommended to also control thatch mechanically."
