Abstract/Contents:"Nonacid cation availability is assessed by soil nutrient analyses. We evaluated three soil testing methods (0.01 M SrCl2, 1:5 H2O, and Mehlich 3) for their ability to extract a plant-available fraction of the soil nonacid cations in four sands ranging in pH from 5.0 to 8.5. Creeping bentgrass [Agrostis stolonifera var. palustris (Huds.) Farw.] leaf content of nonacid cations was used as an index of nutrient availability in the soil. Creeping bentgrass (A-1) plants were grown from seed (7.5 g m-2) in a greenhouse at Ithaca, NY. Nitrogen, S, and P were applied as fertilizers, and deionized water was applied as irrigation to prevent drought stress. Mehlich 3 extractable nonacid cations were not evaluated in the calcareous sand. Even in the non-calcareous sands, the 0.01 M SrCl2 and the 1:5 H2O were equivalent to the Mehlich 3 method in their ability to extract a plant-available fraction of soil nonacid cations. Leaf Ca, Mg, and K contents were within a currently accepted sufficiency range even at Mehlich 3 extractable Ca, Mg, and K levels that are classified as low. The Mehlich 3 test should be calibrated with more accuracy for creeping bentgrass grown on sand rootzones, and the 0.01 M SrCl2 and 1:5 H2O extraction methods should be tested in additional sands to better understand the practicality of their use as universal extractants for sand rootzones."
