Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted in Arizona during the late 1960s to determine "the effects of mowing height and nitrogen fertilization of annual ryegrass on the spring recovery of bermudagrass turf." Details methods and materials used during the experiments, stating that "treatments consisted of mowing established ryegrass at heights of one inch (scalped) and two and three sixteenths inches (normal). Ammonium sulfate was added at a rate of two pounds of nitrogen per 1000 ft2 [square feet] to one half of the plots with no added nitrogen to the remaining plots." Reports that "differences in turfgrass color production values...were generally not significant when no nitrogen was applied." Provides a table that illustrates "the effects of mowing height and nitrogen fertilization on the color production of annual ryegrass-bermudagrass turf." Concludes that scalping ryegrass in May "enhanced regrowth of common bermudagrass."
