Abstract/Contents:CONTENTS NOTE: A new study on topdressing of a Penncross creeping bentgrass green was initiated in 1986 utilizing sand and sand/peat mixes prepared by the Great Lakes Minerals Co. The objective is to determine if the addition of peat or peat and soil into the mix will result in an improved soil medium for greens. The hypothesis is that the 80:20 or the 60:20:20 mixes will result in equal quality turf (or improved) with a soil medium that will be easier to manage than sand alone because of increased water and nutrient holding capacities.
