USGA Summary Points:Core cultivation treatments were initiated in May 2016 on a 20-month-old Shark creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) turf maintained as a putting green turf; topdressing treatments were initiated in June. Turf responses to topdressing and cultivation were evident during the first year of this trial. Turf quality was better when topdressing was applied, regardless of sand size and rate, compared to non-topdressed controls. Turf quality was acceptable on all plots but slightly poorer on cored plots compared to noncored plots throughout most of 2016. Volumetric water content at the 0- to 38-mm surface depth zone was reduced by both topdressing and cultivation, with cultivation having a more pronounced effect.
