Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "to expand knowledge of cultural effects on zoysiagrass sprig establishment, focusing on the potential effects of an organic amendment (GroWin®), N [nitrogen] rates, and foliar- vs. root-feeding of N." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the soil is a Captina silt loam soil, typic hapludults, pH 6.2...The study was arranged as a randomized complete block, split-split-plot design, with cultivar as the main plot factor, GroWin® treatments as the first split, and post-planting fertilization methods as the second split factor...To assure uniform planting densities, the main plots were planted in sub-plot increments, using the GroWin® plots as the plot size for planting." Reports that "weather during the first four weeks of the experiment severely hindered the growth of all the plots...The analysis of variance for each evaluation date indicated a significant effect of cultivar and GroWin® and a significant cultivar x GroWin® interaction." Concludes that "GroWin® produced slight but significant responses to hasten the establishment of zoysiagrass from sprigs. Nitrogen fertility rates or application methods had no effect on the establishment rates of the plots, similar to earlier work. These findings further clarify that zoysiagrasses are a very low-input option for a range of turf situations."
