Abstract/Contents:Presents the results of a study conducted to identify: "annual N fertilization rate effect on color and health of putting greens cohabited by creeping bentgrass and Poa annua, and the potential interactive effects of [quick-release nitrogen] QR-N form and/or systematic growth regulation on the first objective parameters." States that the study was conducted on creeping bentgrass/annual bluegrass mixtures on a topdressed pushup green (TDPU) and a sand-based (SB) green and "in both studies, fertilizer treatments (each comprising 1/13 of the annual rate) were applied April to October with a CO2-powered hand sprayer in a volume of 2.2 gal./1,000 sq.ft...every 15 days." Also states that "these sites were maintained as golf course putting greens throughout the experimental periods." Results include "statistically, shoot growth/vigor response was better correlated to rate of N fertilizer application than to form of the QR N. Expectedly, growth response to N was direct. However clipping yield measured on the SB green lagged behind yields measured on the identically N-fertilized TDPU green."
