USGA Summary Points:Leaving verdure on increases surface organic matter levels. However, this difference is obscured if samples are ground and sieved (as is common at most soil testing labs). If the verdure is of interest, it is critical that the samples be ignited intact and not ground or sieved. Core diameters of 0.75 and 1.5 inches were compared. At one research site, larger cores led to lower mean surface organic matter. At another research site, the mean surface organic matter was identical regardless of diameter. Further investigation is required. For cores of 0.75 inches, only 5 to 8 samples were required to adequately characterize the surface organic matter of all 15 putting greens tested in three different states. When the larger cores were used (1.5-inch diameter), 4 to 5 samples were required. The spatial patterns of the data suggest that cores should be taken approximately 30 feet apart.
