  • You should think of a turfgrass system as a stool
  • This is why a golf course putting green is mowed as often as every day.
  • …which will produce a number of detrimental effects, probably most noticeable a brown appearance
  • …which will improve things like increased drought tolerance.
  • …on un-irrigated cool-season turfgrass mixture(Kowalewski et al., 2007; Calhoun et al., 2005)
  • Abu-Dieyeh and Watson, 2005
  • Lambsquarter population decrease and the turfgrass density increase over time
  • Look for a fertilizer with…
  • Michigan State University (Calhoun et al., 2005); University of Georgia (Johnson and Bowyer, 1981)
  • Other problems associated with over irrigation include…
  • Which can accelerate eutrophication, as mentioned earlier
  • Defendor™ specialty herbicide (common name florasulam) is a postemergence broadleaf herbicide effective in cool temperatures against key annual and perennial weeds in turf, such as white clover, dandelion, chickweed, shepherd’s-purse and common groundsel
