USGA Summary Points:Hollow tine core recycling with the Wiedenmann Core Recycler was 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 23 August 2019 at which time 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. Day of percent cover was lower on plots with cores either recycled or verticut. No differences were present between treatments for soil organic matter, and there were no increases in soil organic matter during the study. This indicates no negative effects from returning hollow tine cores to the putting green after two years. Few differences were found between treatments for the variables measured including porosity, water infiltration rates, and bulk density. This indicates that 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.
