Abstract/Contents:Discusses tissue testing, stating that "if plant tissue tests can be made to work, [turf researchers] can stop making soil tests each year." Details the process of tissue testing, stating that "some grass clippings are placed in a filter paper and rolled like a cigarette. Then plant juice is squeezed into the paper with a pair of pliers. White powder is used for the nitrogen test. When there is a surplus of nitrates in the juice, the powder turns pink. The phosphorus test develops a blue color. For the potash test [researchers] are using dipicrolamine." Also discusses O. J. Noer's visits to several golf courses in the United States in 1950.
