Abstract/Contents:Discusses a previous study that determined "over 750 soils from high performance greens, tees and fairways reveals that high quality turf is routinely produced on alkaline soils... High performance turf can be achieved by the much simpler, less phytotoxic and more effective approach of targeting the appropriate concentrations of key nutrients such as nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese." States that "although an understanding of your soil pH is important in developing management programs, turf can actually survive -- and survive well -- at a much wider range of pH's than more people believe." Contrasts the range of pH levels in a variety of liquids and addresses concerns of high pH levels. Discusses the importance of micronutrients and their vital necessity to plant health.
