Abstract/Contents:"Effects of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilization, mowing heights, clippings disposition, and supplemental iron on the winter survival of centipedegrass were studied in field experiments. Annual applications of nitrogen exceeding 150 kg/ha decreased survival. Large amounts of available phosphorus in the soil tended to accentuate the deleterious effects of excess nitrogen. Lower mowing heights (2.5 cm) reduced winterkill from that obtained at 4.0 and 5.0 cm. Supplemental iron was effective in controlling chlorosis and speeding spring recovery of injured turf. The removal of clippings did not affect winter survival in most cases. Several significant interactions occurred among the various management factors indicating that the reasons for winterkill in centipedegrass are quite complex."
