Abstract/Contents:"Greens are occasionally observed to wilt badly in the sun following a downpour of rain in which they are left in a water-logged condition for a period of days. If neglected the scald that follows can be serious enough to destroy comparatively large areas and mar the appearance of a green within a remarkably short time. It is believed that much of the root system dies under conditions of prolonged saturation with water. Practice has shown that if the tops are prevented from wilting until the roots have had a chance to become re-established, serious injury may be averted. It pays to check this condition by frequent but very light sprinklings at repeated intervals during each of these critical days."
