Abstract/Contents:States that "soil test results provide the basic information necessary to maintain optimum soil fertility." Discusses potential soil test results, detailing the potential cause and treatment for various nutrient levels. Provides recommendations for improving soil quality, suggesting that "if calcium levels are below [less than] optimum, but the pH [potential Hydrogen] is optimum, gypsum is sometimes recommended as a source of calcium." Describes a potential fertility program for turf, comparing the potential benefits of adding nutrients. Suggests three application timings for nutrients -spring, early fall, or late fall- and mentions the benefits of applying fertilizers during each application time.
