Clipping volume is the newest buzzword in golf turf management these days. Measurement of clipping production has long been an important method for researchers but has only recently been utilized by turfgrass managers. Managers have been eyeballing clipping production forever, but that is quite different than measuring and recording clipping production. In this 90-minute webinar, Doug Soldat, Ph.D., reviews the logistics of measuring clippings and explains why it may be useful or beneficial to do so. New data from a Wisconsin study on the impact of foot traffic on clippings will also be discussed. Listen in to get some details you can use to help with management during this next golf season.
