Beginning with a look at the turfgrass industry, introductory chapters cover historical aspects of research and education, current status of the industry, and artificial turf. A turfgrass physiology section focuses on ecological aspects, energy relations and carbohydrate partitioning, and stresses. The third section emphasizes soils and amendments, fertilization, and irrigation. A management section treats efficient maintenance, IPM, and plant growth regulators. The last section addresses research techniques related to the field and controlled-environment research, diseases, insects, weeds, and breeding.
