Based on the successful seminar offered through the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, Applied Turfgrass Science and Physiology cuts right to the authoritative information and know-how that will keep any turf area in optimal condition. Readers get an overview of turfgrasses, the characteristics of different varieties of turfgrasses; a look at plant responses to drought, temperature extremes, and shade stresses; and a comprehensive review of the latest information on how irrigation, mowing, fertilization, cultivation, and plant growth regulators and bio-stimulants affect turfgrass response to stresses and pests. Case studies and more than 165 illustrations reinforce text.
