Abstract

Turf managers strive to maintain dense, uniform stands of turf. Damage caused by winter desiccation, diseases, insects, traffic, or other stresses can compromise turf cover. Recovery of the turf stand is essential in maintaining proper ball roll, playability, and weed control for golf course superintendents. Timely recovery from damage from advantageous and anecdotal evidence suggests GreenNcrease, an Ajinomoto USA, Inc. biostimulant product, may aid in the recovery of damaged turf. Previous research has also demonstrated the product’s ability to stimulate certain growth characteristics of creeping bentgrass.

A research trial was conducted to evaluate GreenNcrease’s impact on the recuperative potential of a damaged creeping bentgrass stand.
