Abstract/Contents:As environmental concerns rise to protect groundwater, many chemicals can be considered potential contaminants. Nitrates from fertilizers prove the greatest concern for golf courses. Presents a brief historical perspective of turfgrass fertilization and groundwater, and factors important to managing golf courses to minimize nitrate leaching. A summary of nitrate leaching from fertilizers applied to turfgrass is presented in table form, as well as the properties of nitrogen sources used on golf courses. Nitrogen application rates and timing, irrigation management, and other approaches to reduce potential nitrate leaching are discussed. Golf courses can be managed so that nitrates from fertilizers do not contaminate groundwater supplies. Practices that can help accomplish this goal are listed with two publications for detailed technical information.
