Abstract/Contents:Suggests fertilization practices for Kentucky bluegrass, stating that "of the many nutrient elements needed by bluegrass, only nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are likely to be needed in larger quantities than supplied by the natural soil." States that in Ohio "it is possible to apply large quantities of these elements at infrequent intervals if such a fertilizer program is desirable. Once an adequate soil level is established, little more is needed to maintain it where the grass clippings are returned." Also states that "a soil test is advisable to determine this level of phosphorus, potassium, and lime." Explains that "any successful turfgrass fertilization program is built around nitrogen, the first number of a fertilizer formula."
