Abstract/Contents:"Preliminary sulfur tests to determine its effect on Ophiobolus Patch disease in 1966 revealed significant color and growth responses on Colonial bentgrass putting green turf. In order to determine the importance of sulfur under Pacific Northwest conditions, trials were initiated in 1967. All rates of S produced significant color and growth responses and reduced Fusarium and Ophiobolus Patch diseases on plots receiving 975 kg N/ha regardless of P and K applications or soil levels. Plots receiving 584 kg N/ha responded similarly to those receiving 975 kg but with slightly poorer color and clipping yield. Color, texture, and clipping yield on plots receiving 292 kg N/ha and all sulfur treatments were improved over those not receiving sulfur, although differences were not as striking as those at higher N levels. Poa annua plants and seedheads were significantly reduced in all plots receiving 185 kg S/ha, with the greatest reduction occurring on plots receiving 292 kg N/ha per year. All plots receiving P, regardless of N or S levels, had significantly more Poa annua than zero P plots at all N levels. X-ray spectrographic analyses revealed significantly higher S levels in tissue from plots receiving the highest levels of Nand S. Seasonal variations in tissue S levels were also observed. These findings have caused changes in fertilizer formulas and practices on sandy soils on putting greens, playfields and other soils low in sulfur in the Pacific Northwest."
