Commonly referred to as "Beard's Bible," after Dr. James B. Beard, the internationally recognized turfgrass agronomist who wrote it, the first edition of this essential work sold over 50,000. Since then, Dr. Beard has spent 16 years compiling his scientific research to update his original best-seller, which is written in conjunction with the entire USGA Green Section and covers every practical and technical aspect of turfgrass management, maintenance, and operation.
