Turf Conditions & Optimal Efficiency with the Grammar of Greenkeeping

Every turfgrass manager knows that temperature, light, water, and fertilizer will influence the growth rate of the grass. Because the growth rate, and adjustments to it, are what finally produce the desired playing surfaces, it is critically important to understand how these factors can be adjusted. We will discuss how the influence of air temperature, photosynthetic light, plant water status, and leaf nitrogen content can be thought of and communicated as a grammar: the fundamental principles or rules of an art or a science. The result of this process is better turf conditions and done so in a systematic way that optimizes efficiency of the work.
