Fraze Mowing and Spring Dead Spot

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Previous research indicates hollow-tine aerification or other cultivation methods may reduce spring dead spot severity and increase fungicide efficacy. Recently, an intense surface cultivation method termed “fraze mowing” has gained popularity as a method of thatch reduction and playing surface adjustment in sports fields. This seminar will discuss the practice of fraze mowing, the current knowledge regarding it's impact on spring dead spot symptoms, and conceptually how fraze mowing could be integrated into an overall management plan.
