Abstract/Contents:Discusses revisions to the United States Golf Association's (USGA) guidelines for green construction that resulted in no "specific requirement to the content of organic matter (OM) in the rootzone." Lists the benefits of OM in the rootzone, including a more stable seedbed; increased retention of water, nutrients, and pesticides; and suppression of turfgrass diseases. Describes treatments applied to 16 lysimeters in Landvik, Norway. Results show that "[composted garden litter] CGL plots established most rapidly and had the highest plant coverage in spring 2004" due to a higher content of soil mineral nitrogen (N) and "except on [composted sewage sludge/spruce bark] CSB plots increasing the interval of fertilizer application from two to three weeks caused a clear reduction in total root dry weight, but shoot dry weight decreased even more, resulting in a lower top/root ratio." Concludes that "1. With the present sowing method (no mult or hydroseeding), the exclusion of OM from the rootzone delayed bentgrass grow-in by 3-4 months. This delay caused high N losses"; "2. rootzones with [CGL] established faster but had greater losses of N, P and K than rootzones with pea or [CSB]"; "3. despite widely different pH-values, plots with peat or CGL were both severely attacked by take-all disease. Plots with no OM or CSB showed virtually no symptoms"; "4. On average for the first year after sowing, CSB plots had the highest visual merit"; and "5. increasing the application interval for mineral fertilizer from two to three weeks caused a significant reduction in shoot and root dry weight but had small impacts on visual merit and total losses of N, P and K during the grow-in period."
