Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "examine the perfomance of native soil putting greens following three years of incorporating various soil amendments into the root zone profile." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "to test various inorganic amendments, a multi-year field study was simultaneously established on two golf courses...Plots were placed on established in-play, native soil 'push-up', 'Tifgreen' bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. X C. transvaalensis Burtt-Davy) putting greens." Reports that "because the amendments are derived from different sources and have different morphological and chemical characteristics treatment effects were expected. However, at no point during either year or at both locations were any visual differences between plots observed." Concludes that "this study did not show an improved nutrient holding capacity with the incorporation of an inorganic amendment...Soil amendment with inorganics may aid with some problems but it will be site-specific and commitment to a prolonged program."
