This publication recommends specific ways to manage sand-based fields, which will require more frequent fertilization, irrigation, and cultivation for proper maintenance than native soil fields. This publication emphasizes the critical aspects of turfgrass maintenance, including the primary cultural practices (mowing, fertilization, and irrigation), as well as the secondary cultural practices (cultivation, top-dressing, and interseeding). By A. Kowalewski, G. Stahnke, T. Cook, and R. Goss.

This publication is also available as an ebook. Authors: A. Kowalewski, G. Stahnke, T. Cook, R. Goss
