Abstract/Contents:" "No topdressing for 26 years" is the story on one green at Roland Park Course, Baltimore Country Club. Robert Scott is the Superintendent. The green is on a hill, built on rock, with excellent sub-drainage. The putting surface is very good. The grass is mixed bent established from seed. It is estimated by one superintendent that each "topping" on 18 greens costs the club $500.00. The greens are of Bermuda grass, and the course is in Texas. This may not represent "average" costs but it is sufficient incentive to study ways and means of producing satisfactory putting surfaces with fewer topdressings. Velvet bent areas in putting greens on many New England courses are suffering from a "chlorotic condition." The diagnosis indicates Helminthosporium (leafspot), which does not respond to ordinary fungicides. Ferrous sulfate (copperas) in light applications (1 to 2 pounds to the green) gives relief in most cases. Creeping bents do not seem to be affected similarly. Richmond, Virginia, reports excellent performance from Cohansey (C-7) bentgrass. This grass performs well also in St. Louis. It has high heat tolerance but is susceptible to dollarspot. It is aggressive, and the light yellow color does not blend well with other named strains. On tight, clay soils in North Carolina, Arlington (C-1) bent has resisted Poa annua invasion longer than have any other strains of bent."
