1997 was a successful research year. Not only were numerous studies initiated and completed, as evidenced by the work reported herein, but we were also successful in obtaining funding for future work. K-State received four grants from the United States Golf Association in 1997. Dr. Bingru Huang got funding for at least 1 year to work on managing creeping bentgrass through our summer stress periods. Dr. Ned Tisserat received funding for a 3-year project on the biology and management of spring dead spot in bermudagrass. Two projects also were funded in Civil Engineering and Agronomy that involve environmental studies related to the construction of Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhattan.
