Annotation from Turfgrass History and Literature: Lawns, Sports, and Golf, by James B Beard, Harriet J. Beard and James C Beard:"A very rare booklet organized in two parts: the theory and the practices of fairway turfgrass culture. Liming, fertilization, and weed control practices in North America are emphasized. The following statement represents O.J.'s views on potassium fertilization in the 1940s:

Fairways seldom need potash fertilizer because most soils contain an abundance of potash. The soil supply is constantly augmented by the decay of clippings. The use of potash may aggravate clover. Poor sandy soils and peats are the only ones that may need occasional applications of potash." p. 300
