Abstract/Contents:"The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of Peat Sorb for treating oil spills created by leaking turfgrass equipment." Hydraulic oil was applied to a 12-year stand of Penncross creeping bentgrass by cutting the hydraulic hose of the mower while mowing. "Treatments were arranged in a randomized complete block design with three replications and each plot was 17 ft by 7 in." Treatments of Peat Sorb and calcined clay (at 400 and 900 lbs/1000 sq ft, respectively) were applied by hand and worked into turf with a broom. The treatments remained on the plots for 24 hours and were removed with a push broom and a walk-behind mower. Visual ratings based on amount of green tissue (on a 0-5 scale with 0 being 0% live grass) were made at 5, 14, 21, 35, 42, and 49 days after treatment (DAT). Encroachment measurements were made at 42, 49, 58, and 67 DAT. A second study was also performed "The time between oil application and product application appeared to have an effect on the level of control." Peat Sorb was applied at 0, 20, and 40 minutes after oil application at previous rates. The oil was 16^DD
