Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate fertilizer programs that used two fertilizes [fertilizers] produced from organic products compared to a standard slow release nitrogen fertilizer." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the three grasses fertilized in the study were tall fescue, a mixture of tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass, and Tifway 419 bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon x Cynodon transvaalensis)." Reports that "the polymer coated urea fertilizer or PCU (Polyon) was the best performing fertilizer across all intervals in the bermudagrass treatment." Concludes that "overall, PCU produced darker bermudagrass and higher quality than NPK [nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium] but was comparable to N12."
