Abstract/Contents:"Summer decline of annual bluegrass (Poa annua L.) putting greens is a major concern of golf course superintendents. Low soil water infiltration rates and high concentrations of salts in the root zone are contributing factors. This study was conducted to determine the effects of summer cultivation treatments on field infiltration rates, soil ECâ‚‘, oxygen diffusion rates, soil total and air-filled porosity, and root mass density. This study was conducted during two summer seasons on a practice putting green located at Industry Hills Golf Courses, City of Industry, CA. The green was constructed to USGA specifications in 1978. Cultivation treatments consisted of (I) no cultivation, (II) solid tine cultivation applied evey 14 d, and (III-V) water injection cultivation: applied with a Toro HydroJect every 21 d (raised positon), and every 14 or 21 d (lowered position). Results showed that cultivation treatment significantly increased field infiltration rates and significantly lowered soil ECâ‚‘. However, cultivation treatments had no effect on soil porosity and a minimal effect on oxygen diffusion rates and root mass density."
