Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted a study conducted in Arizona during 1968 "to determine if phosphorus applications are beneficial to common bermudagrass and if high rates of phosphorus will cause zinc or iron deficiencies." Mentions earlier studies that "showed no advantage in broadcasting treble superphosphate with ammonium nitrate fertilizer over nitrogen alone on established turf." Details methods and materials used during the 1968 experiment, noting that "six N-P2O5 treatments were selected (Table 1) and the plots were established on a border of mature common bermudagrass." Reports that "response to nitrogen was equal on all plots which received treatment." Provides a table that lists measurements of phosphorus percentages and dry matter mass. Concludes that "no beneficial or detrimental effects resulting from phosphorus applications were found."
