Abstract/Contents:"Establishment of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) is often a slow process in sand-based putting greens due to the poor nutrient- and water-holding characteristics of the medium. A study was designed to test the effects of several pre-plant, organic soil amendments on establishment of creeping bentgrass in a sand based putting green in Johnson, Ark. The treatments included a standard pre-plant treatment (Milorganite at 146 kg N ha-1 (3.0 lb N / 1000 ft-2) + methylene urea at 146 kg N ha-1 (3.0 lb N / 1000 ft-2) and three treatments containing a new, proprietary material called Architect's Blend, which is designed to provide all of the nutrients necessary to establish bentgrass in sand with a single application. Architect's Blend was applied at either 7320 kg ha-1 (150 lb 1000 ft-2) or 3660 kg ha-1 (75 lb 1000 ft-2). A final treatment included Architect's Blend at 3660 kg ha-1 (75 lb 1000 ft-2) + methylene urea at 146 kg N ha-1 (3.0 lb N / 1000 ft-2). Data on establishment rates were collected weekly. Root and shoot growth and shoot tissue nutrient analysis were determined at 6 and 8 weeks after planting. The high rate of Architect's Blend (Arch. 150) produced faster grow-in than any of the other treatments, resulting in a 2-week increase in complete coverage. Treatments had minimal effects on shoot or root growth or tissue nutrient levels."
