Hi, my dissertation is based on testing various methods of reinforcement for rootzones of sports fields. In order to test them I have to grow turf samples in containers in the lab and I would appreciate any help on a) how deep will the roots grow, so i ensure the containers are deep enough? b) how long will a well developed root system take to grow, I have until around march to test the samples? c) how can i encourage better root growth through light, temp, fertiliser etc? Unfortunately my advisor has as little knowledge on the subject as I do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (and referenced to in my dissertation) Thank you
