Does rolling greens following a contact fungicide application affect results?

By Gary Deters

Over the last two seasons we have been researching if rolling greens post contact fungicide application affects the efficacy and effectiveness of the fungicide. The results of the trial could possibly take out the guesswork and allow golf course superintendents to make confident decisions.

Working toward a greener spring: Finding solutions to winter turfgrass damage
