FRAISE MOWING AT BETHEL COLLEGE


Fraise Mowing is the technique used to remove the topical foliage with the primary need to remove Poa, along with the many
weed seeds that harbor in the thatch layer. This process allows the desirable Turf to regenerate because of the remaining
crowns that are allowed to remain through the technique. After Fraising fields are aerated and over-seeded.

21 vendors lined the hallway at the Spring Workshop
and a vibrant atmosphere lasted throughout the day.
Both Vendors and general members seemed happy!
