COMPARISON OF MULCH MATERIALS FOR TURF ESTABLISHMENT (SUMMARY)

IN THIS TEST ALL OF THE CELLULOSE AND BRAN TREATMENTS WERE EQUAL TO HAY AS EFFECTIVE MULCH MATERIALS-ALL PROVIDED ADEQUATE EROSION CONTROL. COMBINATIONS OF CELLULOSE FIBER AND FUNGUS-TREATED BRAN APPEARED SUPERIOR TO ALL OTHER PLOTS FOR RESISTANCE TO CRACKING, BLOWING OFF, PEELING OFF, AND DETERIORATION ON AREAS THAT WERE OF GROWTH 90 DAYS AFTER APPLICATION. THE USE OF CELLULOSE FIBER OR THE TREATED BRAN IN PLACE OF HAY OR STRAW AS MULCH MATERIAL ELIMINATES THE PROBABILITY OF INTRODUCING WEEDS AND WEED GRASSES WHICH ARE OFTEN FOUND IN HAY OR STRAW. /AUTHOR/
