Abstract/Contents:Calcareous soils and sands are widespread in the geological formations of southern Germany, and are therefore often used as rootzone components in these regions. But they are weathered by carbonation, and the decomposition of the calcareous material has an unfavorable effect on various chemical and physical properties of rootzones, e.g. pH, availability of micronutrients, permeability, retained water capacity and soil structure. Some suggestions are made for preventing or minimizing these undesirable effects, but the ultimate recommendation is to use more or less non-calcareous soils or sands (less than 5% CaCO3) as materials for turf rootzones.
