USGA Summary Points:"Both spring and summer aeration caused a transient reduction in turf qualtiy and the recovery period was approximately 3 to 4 weeks." "Summer and spring aeration generally enhanced photosynthesis but had no effect on respiration. Aeration reduced the amount of organic matter but not the depth of the thatch/mat layer." "Soil moisture at 0 to 2.6 to 5.9-inch soil depths was significantly lower for deep infrequent-irrigated plots compared to light, frequent-irrigated plots." "Deep, infrequent irrigation reduced creeping bentgrass quality, photosynthesis, and thatch/mat depth but had no effect on respiration during the experimental period." "Deeply and infrequently irrigated creeping bentgrass experienced an increase in canopy temperature, a reduction in soil temperature, and a decrease in organic matter in the thatch/mat layer during the summer." "When data were analyzed over the entire 9.25-inch soil profile, deep, infrequent irrigation of creeping bentgrass resulted in greater total root count, longer total root length. larger total root surface area, and greater total root volume on all four monitoring dates in 2006 compared to light, frequently irrigated bentgrass." "In the immature (<1 year) creeping bentgrass in 2006, spring plus summer aeration generally reduced total root count, and resulted in shorter total root length, smaller total root surface area, and less total root volume comapred to spring and non-aerated bentgrass."
