Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to evaluate the effects of the nutrient seed coating on some key performances of turfgrasses." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "in trial 1 the effect of two nutrient seed coating materials was tested on the lateral root formation of Lolium multiflorum (cv. 'Fabio') grown for two weeks in transparent Petri dishes...filled with sandy soil...In trial 2 a pot experiment was carried out in the greenhouse with alternating temperature...In trial 3 a field experiment was carried out in the UK [United Kingdom] in 2006 with the aim of assessing the effect of the nutrient seed coating on the quality of a sward...In trial 4 a field experiment was carried out in the Netherlands in 2007 in order to assess the effect of nutrient seed coating on turf density." Reports that in trial 1 "the nutrient seed coating was not phytotoxic for roots"; in trial 2 "the nutrient seed coating improved the uptake of phosphorous"; and in trial 3 and 4 "the nutrient seed coating resulted in a better sward quality."
