Abstract/Contents:Presents a study to "investigate the physiological factors that cause summer bentgrass decline, and specifically, examine how carbohydrate metabolism influences the decline in creeping bentgrass root activity and turf quality under low mowing and high temperature." Penncross, Crenshaw and L-93 were examined under changing temperature and close mowing conditions. Results indicate that "turf quality was highest in May, declined to the lowest level in late July and early August, and recovered in late October...however, grasses of all three cultivars mowed at 1/8 inch had lower turf quality than those mowed at 5/32 inch, epecially during the summer months." States that "from June to early August, L-93 had the highest quality, Penncross the lowest, and Crenshaw was intermediate." Also notes that "L-93 had a larger root system than Crenshaw and Penncross." States that "the most interesting result is that the seasonal changes of carbohydrate accumulation in shoots and roots follwed the same patterns as turf quality and root growth." This three-year study began in 1998.
