ROBO‐GOLF: Robotic mowers for better turf quality on golf courses—Preliminary results

  •  1049-1056
  •  1 June 2022

Core Ideas

  • We studied implications for better turf quality on golf course fairways and semiroughs.
  • Preliminary results showed that turfgrass quality with robotic mowing was similar to manual mowing.
  • Robotic mowing resulted in less disease in both fairway and semirough.
  • Robotic mowing tended to increase the spread of white clover compared with manual mowing.
