An eclectic list of references

When I was preparing this book, I read a selection of 40 articles from the マイカの時間 series that I write for ゴルフ場セミナー magazine in Japan. That’s 49,015 words in English about greenkeeping, water, soil, temperature, light, organic matter, playing conditions, and fertilizer.

芝草科学とグリーンキーピング (マイカの時間 The BOOK) is available for purchase here.

Then I put together this reference list for articles and books that I had mentioned in those 40 articles. It’s an eclectic list, and you might like to have a look at these. Perhaps you’ll turn up an article that you would like to read sometime.

More details and the full list are in this document.
