Turfgrass breeders have done a phenomenal job of developing new creeping bentgrass cultivars with fine texture, high density, and improved environmental stress tolerance. These advancements, combined with improved machinery, alter the way you manage creeping bentgrass putting greens. Mowing heights are lower, lightweight rolling is regularly applied, and greens still receive a lot of foot traffic from golfers. In this 90-minute webcast, Joey Young, Ph.D., reviews how all three factors can affect the quality and physiological health of creeping bentgrass. Learn what worked to keep turf quality highest during summer months and what treatments helped set the stage for recovery in the fall. Also included will be a discussion of ball mark severity and recovery that may surprise you.
