USGA Summary Points:Core-aerified treatments were slower to heal, especially at the Rawls Course, which resulted in poorer turf quality, cover, and color throughout the summer and early fall. The ratio vegetation index (RVI) was significantly improved with cultivation practices on the common bermudagrass fairways at Meadowbrook Golf Club in August when rainfall was scarce and the reliance on supplemental irrigation was increased. Granular product applications increased measured electrical conductivity levels at both locations. Further analysis of soil with the portable X-ray fluorescence gun should determine the specific elements that were providing the increased electrical conductivity levels in these treatments. Continuing this research in 2016 will help us determine the additive effects of implementing these cultivation treatments and product applications as a long-term management solution to reducing salinity in the upper soil layer of golf course fairways.
