Abstract/Contents:SUMMARY: "Research indicated that late season fertilization lengthens the fall-winter green period and enhances the rate of spring greenup without stimulating excessive shoot growth, thus allowing the turf plant to maintain higher levels of carbohydrates than when spring-summer fertilizer is used. Nitrogen applied during early spring increases shoot growth rates and decreases the levels of available carbohydrates in the plant, resulting in depressed root growth rates. Late season nitrogen applications have no similar negative effects on root growth. No winter damage or snow mold occurred as a result of late season nitrogen applications."
