Abstract/Contents:"Common centipedegrass [Eremochloa ophiuroides (Munroe.) Hack.] has a natural lighter green color than most turfgrasses. In a recently completed long-term study of nitrogen (N) fertilization of centipedegrass, Johnson and co-workers found that 2.0 lb N/1000 sq. ft. per year provided adequate shoot density, but an acceptable color was not always achieved. When N rates were increased, the turf exhibited a darker green color, but centipedegrass decline appeared within 3 to 5 years. In an attempt to improve the color of centipedegrass, we conducted several research studies in 1985 and 1986 using iron (Fe)."
