Abstract/Contents:Presents a study to "determine the effects of vertical mowing, topdressing, and nitrogen fertility on performance, thatch development, fall and spring overseeding transition, and turf quality of five dwarf bermudagrasses [MiniVerde, Champion, Floradwarf, TifEagle and Tifdwarf]." Results indicate that "thatch production for Champion, Floradwarf and MiniVerde was similar to or greater than that of Tifdwarf. Frequent topdressing and vertical mowing (every two weeks) produced better winter putting surface quality than infrequent (twice yearly) vertical mowing and topdressing. Nitrogen fertilization was important for winter putting surface quality with a minimum of 10 pounds of N per 1000 square feet needed to maintain acceptable turf quality."
