Abstract/Contents:"There are many essential nutrients required for proper turfgrass management. Nitrogen is typically the nutrient applied in the largest amounts. Nitrogen requirements vary with the intended use of the turfgrass, soil medium, and the desired turf aesthetics. Thatch is a tightly intermingled organic layer of dead and living shoots, stems, and roots that develops between the zone of green vegetation and the soil surface. Thatch can be detrimental to the turf's aesthetics and can increase the turf's susceptibility to pest and disease damage. The type and rate of nitrogen fertilizer applied to the turf determines the thatch thickness."
