    Unless I am mistaken, Penn State did a similar study in the early nineties about this as well.
    The course I maintained oh so many years ago had a wet boom spray rig for the greens which had anti-freeze in the boom/pump assembly to prevent freezing when I came on board as the GC Superintendent.
    I remembered my reaction to the anti-freeze being in a greens sprayer then as not being to favorable as I could easily envision residue making it's way onto my putting greens.
    Interesting study though although I would like to see a more empirical study which addresses residual anti-freeze in the native soil and it's impact on the soil profile.
    Oh, and Russ - about your signature line, all I can say is remember Taranto.

    Guess I better change that signature line.
