Cereale) survive in and build up their populations in thatch-mat layers. Wet thatchmat also provides moist conditions needed by blue-green algae and moss to proliferate. , become puffy) during hot and humid periods, predisposing bentgrass to scalping. The best managed turf has neither too little nor too much thatch-mat. Fertilizer management is important in minimizing thatch-mat. Most of the annual nitrogen applied to creeping bentgrass usually is in early autumn to promote recovery from summer stress and coring and vertical cutting injury.

Simply stated, less mowing is best in stress situations. 5 mm) is recommended. , sugars) and to naturally cool via transpiration. An increase in canopy height may help to slightly moderate soil temperature and alleviate stress in the rootzone. 7). During especially hot and humid periods it is prudent to use walkbehind greens mowers equipped with solid rollers. Even though walk-mowing may be impractical for all greens, it certainly would be most beneficial to greens that are weakened and showing a loss in turf density.

9). 8 Pocket green severely scalped in early summer. 9 Scalping due to nitrogen fertilizer overlap and subsequent stimulated growth. 10 Scalping puffy creeping bentgrass on an approach. Note aerial roots in thatch (inset). thatch-mat and plant stems swell. Stems may be lifted or become elevated as a result of swelling. 10). These “aerial roots” appear to be pushing crowns upwards as if to seek better exposure to oxygen in the thatchmat layer, and they are not unlike the adventitious roots produced by corn plants.
