Abstract/Contents:"Results are reviewed from field experiments concerned with soil acidity in sports turf and ornamental turf. Without additional liming, pH decreased more quickly the higher its original level. Soil acidity affected the competition between grasses. At higher pH Lolium perenne was more competitive and at lower pH Agrostis tenuis, ph-KCl 5 being the threshold value. When strongly acidifying fertilizers like ammonium sulphate and sulphur coated urea were applied, the observed decrease in pH in the 0-5 cm layer was less than was calculated on a theoretical basis. This is partly explained by the fact that these fertilizers affect the pH of turf to a depth of at least 10 cm."
