Learn More About Thatch Management  Thatch is the undecomposed or partially decomposed layer of living and dead grass stems, roots, rhizomes, stolons, and other organic matter found between the soil surface and grass blades. Thatch is a turf growth medium that is well aerated and compaction resistant with poor water and nutrient holding capacities.

Winter Maintenance Calendars For Every Climate  STMA has produced winter maintenance calendars for warm season, cool season, and transition zone climates. These comprehensive calendars cover everything from mowing and fertilization to irrigation system winterization and seeding.

STMA Heads to the Live Music Capital of the World!  Austin, Texas—long considered one of the most influential music cities in America—plays host to the 22nd Annual Sports Turf Managers Association Conference and Exhibition next week, January 11-15. With more than 200 live music venues nearby, downtown Austin will provide an excellent setting for the green industry’s largest event dedicated to sports turf management.

Making the Most of Your Maintenance Dollars  Most athletic field managers are running on tight budgets these days, and looking for ways to get more out of fewer resources. At the same time, if you’re charged with maintaining safe, playable fields, you don’t want to compromise on equipment maintenance and need your mowers, aerators, and other machines to be up and running.
