Abstract/Contents:"For sports turf nitrogen is the main nutrient. In a summary of the result of field trials at the Institute for Soil Fertility the significance of nitrogen for grass performance is discussed. Though the influence of nitrogen on grass growth is clearly positive, this is of ground cover throughout the year show a negative interaction between nitrogen fertilizer dressings and simulated playing intensity. In fact, high nitrogen rates cannot deminish [diminish] the harmfull [harmful] effect of wear during winter months. In a mixed sward of mainly Lolium perenne nitrogen increases the percentage of Poa annua but decreases Phleum bertolonii, Poa pratensis, Trifolium repens, weeds and also bare ground. Only Lolium perenne tends to persist when simulated playing intensity is increased. Nitrogen fertilization in late autumn has a slightly bennificial [beneficial] effect on grass performance during winter and early spring. Most impressive results were observed after an attack of Corticium fuciforme which was reduced by nitrogen dressings in October or November. About 50 percent of nitrogen contained in grass clippings, if left on the sward, can become available to the grass in the current year."
