Abstract/Contents:"During July and August, minute plants known as algae may form a green scum on turf in spots where the grass is thin, particularly in areas where it has been thinned out by disease. The scum is likely to develop during exceptionally rainy seasons or in low, heavily watered areas where there is an abundance of plant food and some dead grass. Its growth can usually be controlled by an application of corrosive sublimate at the rate of 1 to 3 ounces to 1,000 square feet. If it persists in being troublesome, it would be wise to permit the scum to dry out and form a paperlike cust and then break this up by spiking or raking with an iron rake. This operation should be followed by the application of a light topdressing or reseeding, depending on the extent of the trouble."
