Abstract/Contents:Reports that "65 to 90% of home lawns contain levels of soil test P [phosphorus] that are above what research has shown to be optimum levels for the grass." Suggests that "in most instances fertilizer is not the primary source of soil test P in home lawns." Reports that "topsoil, not lawn fertilizer, is the primary source of the soil test P in at least the more...established Madison [Wisconsin] area lawns." Explains that "applying a typical high-N [nitrogen] lawn fertilizer such as 29-3-4 cannot increase soil test P when a lawn is mulch mowed and will decrease soil P by about 1.6 ppm [parts per million] per year if clippings are removed."
