Abstract/Contents:Describes a study conducted "to answer several questions regarding nitrate concentrations and movement under bermudagrass." States that "of the 16 essential nutrients needed by turfgrasses, nitrogen (N) is required in the greatest quantity, promoting visual quality, damage recovery and vigor." Results show "consistent patterns for nitrate within the rootzone at both golf courses, with higher concentrations in the fairway and rough and very low concentrations in the unfertilized non-play areas." Concludes that "a properly managed turf is an excellent filter for removing nitrate from the soil and keeping it out of streams. Further, bermudagrass appears to be a reasonable plant system for riparian buffers, especially where trees and shrubs are functionally incompatible."
