Abstract: 

The effects of three media namely: clay soil, mixture of fine sand / palm waste (10:IV/v), and mixture of fine sand /spent mushroom compost (10: I V/V) with three sod nettings including: plastic mesh, gunny hemp, palm fiber as well as control (without net) on growth rate, root density, amount of chlorophyll, and weight & strength of sod pieces  were investigated in Agricultural Faculty of Tehran university in two years (2001 and 2002). Turf used was of sport types and a mixture of four types of seeds including: Lolium prenne cv. 'Taya' (40%), Poa pratensis cv. 'Wembly' (30%) and cv. 'Sobra' (10%), and Festuca rubra cv. 'Diego' (20%). The experiment was conducted as a factorial based on Complete Randomized Design with 12 treatments and 3 replications. Results showed that growth rate, leaf chlorophyll and sod weight, in clay bed, were higher than in sand mixes and at 1% level the difference between them was significant, while root volume, and sod strengthin sand beds were higher than in clay beds.
Application of palm fiber netting increased growth rate, root volume and leaf chlorophyll. Sod supported by plastic netting exhibited the most strength.
