Abstract/Contents:Discusses possible reasons West Field had more growth than two other fields that were treated in the North Dakota State University practice fields maintenance program. "Empirical evidence suggests that the pulverization of the cores acted synergetically with the aeration to stimulate growth." West Field was the only field to have its cores pulverized immediately after aeration. Mentions that "the 20% addition of rubber pieces is in no way toxic to either turfgrass seedlings or mature plants...compaction was greatly reduced in this section, with readings being about 10% lower than in the non-rubberized section." Also discusses mowing overgrown grass and leaving the clippings on the ground; it produced no harmful side effects.
