Abstract/Contents:Addresses soil and turf requirements, focusing on potassium (K) and phosphorus (P). States that "with the onset of cooler nights and higher levels of soil moisture, a healthy application of nitrogen along with P & [and] K indicated by your soil test will help to jumpstart the turf and promote the growth necessary to help withstand the inevitable pounding caused by fall sports." Continues by detailing potentially beneficial cultivation practices, explaining that "in addition to soil fertility, aeration is also just as or more important." Mentions topdressing applications, and emphasizes the need to choose a turf species that complies with the local climate of the field.
