Such a lot aquatic ecosystems have variable water degrees. those water-level fluctuations (WLF) have a number of results at the organisms above and less than the waterline. usual WLF styles in lakes warrantly either productiveness and biodiversity, whereas premature floods and droughts could have unwanted effects. Human affects on WLF have ended in a stabilization of the water degrees of many lakes by way of hydraulic law, premature drawdown as a result of water use, or floods as a result of water free up from hydropower crops within the catchments.

Conversely, grooved rollers tend to sink into the canopy and promote mechanical damage and scalping. Mowing in the presence of dew can be helpful because the moisture lubricates the bed knife, thus reducing drag or pulling of the mower.

Syringing and hand watering should replace use of the overhead irrigation system until the thatch-mat and soil become dry.

9). 3 Lighter-weight mowing units made it possible to grow creeping bentgrass fairways in stressful environments. 4 Tee damaged by a mower pushing water. (Photo courtesy of J. ) Low mowing heights, however, generally are preferred to maintain surface smoothness in high-density cultivars. These newer bentgrass cultivars seem to tolerate lower summer mowing better than other conventional cultivars. Turf injured by mowing during hot and relatively dry periods usually will appear reddish-brown for a few days, and in more severe cases leaves turn tan and stand density declines.

24 Abrasion from brushing in sand topdressing can cause creeping bentgrass to develop a yellow or bronze color within a few days. will topdress only dry turf and wash sand off the canopy by lightly irrigating rather than brushing. Light topdressing when greens are chlorotic, weak, or otherwise stressed in the heat of summer should be delayed until turf is actively growing and can recover rapidly from abrasion. Syringe dry or wilted greens before and after topdressing to reduce the effects of this type of abrasion.
