Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "examine corn gluten and soybean meal rates of application that would more closely approximate normal fertility rates. In addition, the timing of application will be examined." Describes methods and materials used in the study, stating that "three turf quality factors: colour [color], density, and area coverage [were] assessed using protocols established by the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP)." Reports that "by fall, the dandelion population within the trial area had increased at all sites. The Kelowna and Regina sites had the greatest increase in dandelion [population], while at the Penticton and Calgary sites the dandelion populations remained relatively stable." Concludes that "turf quality ratings were quite variable from site to site. Differences in turf quality are usually the result of application of the treatments. However, since not all of the treatments were in place prior to the fall rating no conclusion can be made."
