Abstract/Contents:"Most iron deficiencies in bentgrass are a result of high soil pH levels or alkaline soils. Iron is a necessary micronutrient for chlorophyll synthesis thus playing a vital role in turfgrass color. Iron is immobile within the plant and is removed quickly from frequent mowing that bentgrass requires for putting green surfaces. This requires frequent low application rates of iron to replenish the plants need for iron. Acceptable levels of iron within the plant enhanced visual shoot quality by causing a darker green color of the leaf blades. Response to iron applications varies with environmental conditions. Favorable turfgrass conditions favor an increased uptake of iron into the plant. When maintained at acceptable levels in the plant, iron can help bentgrass maintain high visual shoot quality under high traffic and low mowing heights that occur on golf course greens."
