USGA Summary Points:Topdressed plots showed a faster green-up response than the untreated control plots in mid-April regardless of sand type. Plots that received higher rates of application exhibited a greater greening response than plots receiving lighter rates of application. Topdressed plots exhibited less dollar spot incidence than untreated plots. Plots that received higher rates of topdressing had less dollar spots than plots that received lower rates of topdressing, regardless of sand type. Earthworm pressure was not sufficient to determine treatment differences. Topdressed treatments had higher resistance to penetration than the untreated control plots demonstrating a firmer surface than the untreated controls. The fine sand had the greatest resistance to penetration, followed by the medium sand and the coarse sand, respectively. Plots receiving higher rates of topdressing exhibited greater firmness than plots receiving the lower rates. Untreated controls had the highest volumetric soil moisture content in the top 2" of the playing surface compared to all topdressing treatments. The fine and medium sand treatments hold more water than the coarse sand treatments. Regardless of sand type, the higher the rates of application the less water is held in the top 2" of the playing surface.
