Advanced Turfgrass Management Lab Manual
Turfgrasses are used for many purposes such as golf courses, sports fields, and a variety of commercial and homeowner settings. Many other uses include other recreational activities, functional uses such as roadsides and airports, and for a variety of erosion control activities. Successful turfgrass management does not occur by chance. This book provides the in-depth knowledge and understanding of the science needed to accomplish this. Units (chapters) are arranged so as to build upon previous ones to help improve the reader’s understanding of the science and art of successful turfgrass management.
Bert McCarty, PhD, is a Professor of Plant and Environmental Sciences and Certified Professional Agronomist specializing in turfgrass science and management at Clemson University, USA, having previously served as a faculty member at the University of Florida, and North Carolina State University. He is the author and co-author of 13 books related to weed identification and control, sports field management, golf course management, sod production, and turfgrass and agricultural chemistry, and soil physics. He is a Fellow of the Crop Science Society of America and the American Society of Agronomy, and recipient of the Fred Grau Turfgrass award recognizing the top national and international turfgrass scientist. His research focuses on weed management, plant growth regulatory (PGR) use, and environmental stress physiology issues affecting turfgrass managers.
Philip J. Brown, PhD, is an Extension Specialist in Soil Science and Septic System Education within the School of Plant and Environmental Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, USA. He obtained a MS and PhD in Soil Physics and Turfgrass Science in the Plant and Environmental Science Department at Clemson University, USA, where he studied, among other things, soil compaction relief on heavily trafficked sports fields and the dynamics of water movement in porous media in relation to sports fields. He also has been a Lecturer at Bishop Burton College, UK, and he is an active member of several professional societies.
