Abstract/Contents:"Turfgrasses used as sports surfaces are prone to damage not normally experienced in other sites. Cultural practices may worsen or mitigate damage. Objectives of this research were to determine the effects of cultural practices on the initial injury and recovery from injury of zoysiagrass caused by baseballs divoting the surface. A turf injury rating system measured initial injury symptoms and subsequent recovery under N fertilization, topdressing, mowing height and overseeding. It was found that 1) higher N rates results in decreased injury symptoms, 2) lower mowing height increases recovery time, 3) overseeding does not lower initial scuff injury nor improve recovery from injury, but tall fescue- overseeded zoysiagrass surface resulted in lower injury ratings than perennial ryegrass or kentucky [Kentucky] bluegrass, and 4) topdressing with sand results in lower injury than topdressing with crumb rubber or organic material."
