Abstract/Contents:Presents an inquiry regarding iron applications on turfgrass. Explains that though there are disagreements as to whether iron applications provide an immediate greening of the turf stand, "under conditions of deficiency...iron applications will certainly improve the color and health of turf because iron is necessary for chlorophyll formation (photosynthesis) in leaves and other plant processes." Adds that iron is usually applied to turf "to avoid the problem of iron becoming unavailable in the soil."
