Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "characterize a general response (color, density, turf quality, thatch accumulation, and disease incidence) to nitrogen fertilization, mowing, and their interaction among zoysiagrass cultivars." Describes the experiment and the methods used, reporting that "results indicate that turf density is improved through cultivar selection and N [nitrogen] fertility. 'Cavalier' consistently had greater turf density than 'Meyer' and 'El Toro'."

USGA Summary Points:Turf density was greatest for 'Meyer' and 'Cavalier' compared to 'El Toro'. Turf density was improved when fertilizing with at least 2lbs N/1000 ft2/year. Spring green-up was highest for 0.5-inch mown plots. Among 1.5-inch mown plots, higher nitrogen rates (at least 4 lbs N/1000 ft2/year) decreased spring green-up. Scalping was greatest when mowing at 0.5-inch and fertilizing with 6 lbs N/1000 ft2/year. Turf quality was generally highest for 'Meyer' and 'Cavalier'. Turf quality was highest in the spring, among 1.5-inch mown plots, when receiving less than 4 lbs N/1000 ft2/year. There was no advantage to fertilizing more than 2 lbs N/1000 ft2/year. Turf quality was never unacceptable for the unfertilized check plots. Nitrogen source did not affect turf quality in the field.
