Abstract/Contents:"Athletic field safety is a growing concern on all levels from young children to professional sports. Finding time to close the field to relieve compaction is often difficult, but new machines offer a potential solution. The objective of this project is to evaluate the performance of a native soil Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) athletic field under simulated traffic subjected to various aerification methods and the Imants Shockwave. Safety parameters such as surface hardness and rotational resistance were tracked throughout the season to determine if any benefits exist to athlete safety between treatments. This is the first year of a two-year study."
