Abstract

Abstract

A technique was developed for measuring the rooting of sodded turfs. ‘Merion’ Kentucky bluegrass sod pieces, transplanted from organic and mineral soil, were placed in a frame having a fiberglass screen bottom. The frames containing the sod pieces were placed on a sandy loam soil and allowed to root. After 5 weeks the sod was lifted vertically from the underlying soil with a block and tackle technique. Sod grown on organic soil rooted into the underlying soil better than that produced on mineral soil.
