Abstract

Soil invertebrates, especially larger macroinvertebrates, move soil, fragment organic matter and change resource accessibility for soil microorganisms. Macroinvertebrates also affect the formation and turnover of aggregates, which are important controls of soil organic matter dynamics because they...

Abstract

Green spaces in urban parks are an essential part of urban planning, not only meeting the environmental demands of urban dwellers but also absorbing greenhouse gases generated in urban regions. Mineralization of soil organic carbon (SOC) is one of the most important processes of C cycling, and...

Abstract

Entomopathogenic nematodes have shown potential as biocontrol agents targeting larvae of the annual bluegrass weevil, Listronotus maculicollis Kirby, a major golf course turf pest in eastern North America with widespread insecticide resistance. Control levels of single applications of nematodes...

Abstract

Subsoil compaction is universally known to have negative impacts on crop production. These impacts are prominent in modern mechanized systems that rely on extensive use of heavy field machinery. Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is an intensively managed crop with yields often limited by subsoil...

Abstract

Research was conducted to determine the extent of herbicide resistance in annual bluegrass (Poa annua L.) randomly collected from Tennessee golf courses during 2018. Harvested plants were cultured for seed collection, with progeny screened for resistance to glyphosate (Roundup Pro; 32 fl oz acre...

Abstract

Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica Newman, is an important invasive pest that causes significant damage to golf courses, blueberries, raspberries, hops and many other crops and ornamentals in the eastern United States. This study was conducted to determine the survival of Ovavesicula popilliae...

Abstract

Bermudagrass is becoming increasingly popular in the Mediterranean transition zone of Europe for establishing new sports and recreational turfgrasses. In these regions, the quality and winter hardiness of bermudagrass turf is influenced by the establishment. It has been demonstrated that an early...

Abstract

Herbicide-resistant weeds pose a severe threat to sustainable vegetation management in various production systems worldwide. The majority of the herbicide resistance cases reported thus far originate from agronomic production systems where herbicide use is intensive, especially in industrialized...

Abstract

Urban soils may restrict turfgrass rooting depth with shallow soil layers in high sand content soils, which may influence water conservation. A greenhouse study sought to quantify water usage and determine the physiological response of turfgrasses at four irrigation levels. 'ATF-1434' tall fescue (...
