A principal introductory text for formal and informal instruction in turfgrass management, this generously illustrated book covers important features of turfgrass systems, interactions between system components, and principles of turfgrass management.

From the Back Cover:

In addition to updating the information on cultural operations, as well as pesticides and other materials used in turfgrass management, significant improvements to this edition include:

  • Expanded introductory chapter includes new sections on the history of turf and the turfgrass industry
  • Expanded bioenergetics and metabolism section in Chapter 2 includes more detailed coverage of phytohormones and antioxidants
  • Extensively updated turfgrass species coverage in Chapter 3
  • New section on water repellent soils included in Chapter 4
  • Expanded nutrient formulations coverage in the fertilization portion of Chapter 5
  • New section on biostimulants added to Chapter 6
  • Expanded 8-page color insert shows morphological common weeds, diseases, and insects

Hallmark features of this best-selling text have been retained including:

  • Rich use of illustrations convey key concepts, processes, and relationships that, in aggregate, constitute turfgrass science and management
  • End-of-chapter questions help focus attention on key concepts
  • Inclusion of a contemporary climatic classification system adapted from Trewartha's system is unique among plant-science texts and provides a basis for determining where specific turfgrasses are adopted anywhere in the world
