Abstract/Contents:"I should mention one more phase of our turf work and that is studies of the various carriers of nitrogen. Our particular interest is to determine whether the new Urea-form material will compare advantageously with our natural organics as far as growth rates are concerned. By now I think we are very definitely safe in saying that the Urea-form materials at least in the range of availability that we have been studying, do compare very favorably and can be used very nicely to supplement our natural organics. My only gripe has been that we haven't been able to get them produced commercially. We have a series of crabgrass tests in cooperation with the other tests that are being done at various states and we have limited ourselves to studies of only the materials that are recognized as having definite value for crabgrass control; that is, the mercurials, potassium cyanate and sodium arsenite. We have a pretty nice looking area of soild Poa annua. We have the idea just as Jess has that there should be some way of either making the darn stuff grow and keeping it growing or being sure that it won't grow. That came largely as a result of the pressure that is being brought to bear on most experiment stations that are interested in this special purpose turf work to see if some better documented information could be secured on this whole Poa annua picture."
