Abstract/Contents:Discusses the importance of monitoring nitrogen levels in turf soil and describes over-fertilization as the major cause of excessive levels of nitrogen in soil. Provides an example in which soil nitrogen was responsible for turf destruction and to diminish nitrogen levels, "the superintendent halted all nitrogen applications in the damaged areas and then sent soil samples off for analysis periodically to monitor how rapidly the nitrogen levels were declining." Gives guidelines on how to monitor nitrogen levels.
