Abstract/Contents:Asks the question: "I have three-year-old Tifdwarf putting greens that are rapidly developing patched of off-type bermudagrass. What is the cause?" Cites that "in most cases, the cause for development of off-types is contamination." Lists three potential contamination sources, including the production field where the grass was originally grown, "the failure to fully eradicate the existing bermudagrass from the putting green prior to planting," and introduction of contaminants "via various types of turf maintenance equipment and via golf shoes."
