Our bentgrass contamination removal trials are showing some results! There are clear distinctions between the herbicide applications. We also are evaluating several different methods of establishing bluegrass in these areas. Herbicide treatments differ in one direction and seed establishment methods in the other. We hope to have a solid recipe that is proven to work the best for renovating old areas of bentgrass contamination. The final application of the herbicide will take place this week. A successful experiment on this small scale will hopefully provide us the certainty that would allow us to use these methods to improve the composition of our secondary playing surfaces.........(if this goes well, we would like to try and get more bluegrass and less bentgrass in the rough.)
These areas are on seven blue if you would like to take a closer look.
Killing grass is fun,
