USGA Summary Points:Hollow tine core recycling with the Wiedenmann Core Recycler is being compared to traditional hollow tine aeration core removal and replacement with fresh sand and verticutting hollow tine cores and dragging back in the chopped up cores. A creeping bentgrass putting green meeting USGA spec rootzone was aerated on 2" by 2" spacing with 3/4" tines on 30 Aug. 2018 and treatments were applied. All treatments were fully recovered from aeration within two weeks of aeration, with no negative effects of recycling cores on putting green recovery. All plots experienced a reduction of soil organic matter from the aeration regardless of core or topdressing treatment. No differences were present between treatments for soil organic matter. This indicates no negative effects from returning hollow tine cores to the putting green after one year. Few differences were found between treatments for the variables measured. This indicates that in year one the Wiedenmann Core Recycler or verticutting hollow tine cores can provide a way to return sand into the putting green surface without negative effects of recycling on the rootzone characteristics and performance.
