Physiological Responses of Kentucky Bluegrass to Simulated Athletic Field Traffic


Abstract

Present-day sports turf managers are pushing turf stands to perform at higher standards, and for longer periods, than previously thought possible. This is due to turf genetic improvements, advancements in turf culture technology, and pressure from end-users for “better” conditions. Because of these parameters, turf stress research has increased over the past two decades. Most of the research has focused on turf responses to heat, drought, or salinity stress, because mitigation of such stresses can be achieved through altered or improved cultural practices.
