Abstract/Contents:"Air temperatures below 10°C cause a growth arrest in most warm season turfgrass species (Volterrani et al., 2008; Wei et al., 2008) while temperatures near or below 0°C induce winter dormancy. In such conditions green leaves turn progressively to a straw like aspect with significant differences being observed among species and cultivars to reach the complete loss of colour. Compared to other warm season species, zoysiagrasses are known to exhibit the best colour retention in winter, with Zoysia matrella retaining colour longer than Zoysia japonica (Engelke et al., 2002). Late fall nitrogen fertilization could be a way for further reduction of dormancy period of Z. matrella. Similarly to colour, plant nutrient uptake declines with temperature reduction though it continues through the first stages of plant growth arrest (Beard, 1982), thus nitrogen application scheduling is of great importance. The goal of the present research was to evaluate the effect of nitrogen application in different dates during the fall on Z. matrella (Manila grass) turfgrass winter colour retention."
