Abstract/Contents:"Excessive rainfall in recent weeks has produced a lush growth of grass in many districts. After periods of heavy rainfall or excessive watering grass is apt to suffer unduly in a sudden drought. Careful watering at such times may greatly reduce the damage. When turf receives too much water, the roots of the grass will be close to the surface of the soil and therefore unable in times of drought to reach the water present in the soil at lower depths. A gradual reduction in the amount of water applied will give the grass a chance to send its roots down further into the soil and thus enable it to resist better the injury which will result when watering is stopped entirely. Raising the mowers will provide for additional shading of the ground and will prevent excessive evaporation from the surface of the soil."
