Abstract/Contents:Discusses research conducted to determine moss control options on golf putting greens. The first set of trials focused on nitrogen fertility levels and several metallic compounds. "Initial applications demonstrated color responses from iron sulfate, copper hydroxide, ammonium sulfate, and combinations of iron sulfate or copper hydroxide with ammonium sulfate....Moss responded differently to each treatment....The best turf quality and moss control occurred where ammonium sulfate, iron sulfate, and copper hydroxide were applied alone and where ammonium sulfate was applied in combination with either iron sulfate or copper hydroxide." Mentions that the next step in the research will be to determine whether the mosses return in the summer, and which controls will be best to control summer mosses.
