|Australian Native Grasses: Sowing, Growing and Using Them - Third Edition|
The trend towards using native grasses within the golf course environment has developed momentum in recent times with many new course developments and course revegetation programmes taking advantage of the many benefits native grasses afford. Their tolerance to drought and ability to grow in challenging environments with minimal inputs, not to mention the aesthetic value they also add, have made native grasses a logical choice.
|Best Golf Course Management Practices – Third Edition|
Golf courses are continually increasing in number, as well as sophistication in terms of design, management, and increased scrutiny from the general public and regulatory agencies. Golf course management quality and intensity range from very low-maintained facilities to exquisite, highly maintained courses which host major tournaments.
|Best Management Practices for Saline and Sodic Turfgrass Soils|
By R.N. Carrow and R.R. Duncan
University of Georgia duo Bob Carrow and Ronny Duncan would have to be among the most prolific authors within the international turfgrass management scene over the past decade and they have recently added another title to their ever-growing back catalogue. Hot on the heels of Turfgrass and Landscape Irrigation Water Quality: Assessment and Management, a 2009 collaboration with former superintendent and USGA agronomist Michael Huck, Carrow and Duncan have teamed together to publish Best Management Practices for Saline and Sodic Turfgrass Soils: Assessment and Reclamation.
|Bird Conservation on Golf Courses: A Design and Management Manual|
With the golf industry’s push to improve its environmental management practices, golf courses are continually looking at ways and methods of enhancing their operations in order to benefit their immediate environment.
|Bunkers, Pits and Other Hazards (2006)|
The game of golf would not be the unique creature it is were it not for the many and varied hazards which present themselves during a stroll around the links. Whether natural or man made, as any hacker knows they will at some stage ‘conspire’ to ruin what was up until that point a ‘perfect’ round.
|Colour Atlas of Turfgrass Weeds|
Maintaining today’s modern, multi-million dollar turf complexes at the desired level of aesthetics requires knowledge of specific weeds, their biology and available control measures. This book, Color Atlas of Turfgrass Weeds, aims to do just that and does so admirably.
|Compendium of Turfgrass Diseases - Third Edition|
The AGCSA often fields calls from industry practitioners wanting to know which books are considered the ‘must haves’ for their turf maintenance library collection. While Beard’s two seminal texts Turfgrass Science and Culture and Turf Management for Golf Courses top the annual best-seller lists, this book can also be considered as one of turf’s top texts.
|Controlling Turfgrass Pests – Third Edition|
As we are told from an early age, never judge a book by its cover. Well nothing could me more true for the second edition of Controlling Turfgrass Pests by Thomas Fermanian, Malcolm Shurtleff, Roscoe Randell, Henry Wilkinson, Philip Nixon.
