Abstract/Contents:Discusses the problems related to summer environmental stresses on turfgrass. States that "many problems associated with summer atmospheric stresses can be minimized by turfgrass cultural practics that ensure maximum root development." Provides a list of cultural practices that will maximize root growth and reduce the effects of summer stress. Concludes that "adjustment of cultural practices to maximize root growth and development results in a turf with much better potential to survive summer stresses. The importance of roots in relation to turfgrass culture must not be overlooked by turf managers. Warm-season grasses generally possess more extensive root systems than do cool-season turfgrasses. Because of the very close mowing height, turfgrasses growing on putting greens possess a much better root system."
