Abstract/Contents:Discusses research conducted "to investigate the effect of three synthetic reinforcement materials used in a silt loam and sand rootzone matrix on 1) wear tolerance of a cool season turf blend used for sports fields; 2) surface playing quality; 3) soil compaction; and 4) water infiltration rate and air porosity." Displays "traction, surface hardness, ball bounce..." Also provides traction and hardness data collected from the control and sportsgrass on the silt loam in 1998. Indicates that more data is needed before valid comparisons of the treatments can be made.
