Abstract/Contents:Discusses mowing heights during periods of summer stress. Explains that "generally... raising the cutting height even 1/64 (0.25 mm) will prove beneficial in enhancing the potential for turf survival under... summer stress conditions, especially if there is relatively intense traffic at the same time." States that "there is one exception to the above guidelines, specifically it relates to the newer super-high density creeping bentgrass cultivars that tolerate very-close mowing heights and have better resistance to heat stress."
