Abstract/Contents:"Influences of moisture, temperature (T), and photon flux density (L), on the concentrations and contents of macronutrients in 21-day-old tissue of four warm?season perennial grasses were studied. Highest mean concentrations of N, P, and K occurred in dallisgrass (DAL). Lowest N, K, and S concentrations occurred in bahiagrass (BAH). Coastal bermudagrass (COA) was consistently lowest in P concentration. Concentrations of Mg were higher in the Paspalum than the Cynodon species, averaging 4.5 vs. 2.6 g/kg, respectively. Yields generally increased with increasing levels of moisture, T and L. Nutrient concentrations were generally higher at the higher moisture level. Increased growth temperatures most frequently lowered nutrient concentrations, although T was positively related to K, Mg, Ca and S concentrations in BAH and DAL. Linear T effects indicated that N concentrations decreased 0.5 to 1.2 g/kg for each C° increase. Photon flux density caused less variation in nutrient concentrations and less consistent effects than did T. Nutrient concentrations most frequently increased with increased L. Effects of T and L were about equally important at the two moisture levels. Nutrient contents generally increased as yield increased even in situations where T and L had negative influences on nutrient concentrations."
