Abstract/Contents:"The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is increasing at an unprecedented rate, due primarily to fossil fuel burning and land use change. The increased awareness of this global problem has led to increased pressure by society to minimize the impacts of elevated atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHG). Nutrient cycling on golf courses has the capacity to sequester GHG through the accumulation of soil organic carbon (QIAN and FOLLETT, 2002; MILESI et al., 2005). However, cultural management practices can offset sequestration by mitigating GHG emissions directly (fertilization) or indirectly (maintenance equipment) (BARTLETT and JAMES, 2011). Fertilizer application, irrigation, and other turfgrass management practices have the potential to contribute to emissions and mitigation of greenhouse gases, leading to uncertainties in the net contribution of turfgrass ecosystems to climate change (ZHANG et al., 2013). Fertilization of turfgrass has been shown to increase soil nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions ranging from 0.5 to 6.4 kg N ha-1 yr-1 (GUILBAULT and MATTHIAS, 1998; KAYE et al., 2004; BREMER, 2006; GROFFMAN et al., 2009; LIVESLEY et al., 2010; TOWNSEND-SMALL and CZIMCZIK, 2010; ZHANG et al., 2013). MAGGIOTTO et al. (2000) found that urea-based fertilizers minimized N2O emissions and indicated that long-term effects of slow-release urea based fertilizers still need to be studied. Choice of fertilizer release (fast versus slow release) and mechanism of fertilizer break-down needs to be considered as a method for mitigating GHG emissions. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to determine the impact of fertilizer source (Urea, Encapsulated Polyon and Milorganite), turfgrass species (Agrostis stolonifera L. and Poa pratensis L.), and site location (soil moisture regime) have on GHG (carbon dioxide [CO2], methane [CH4], and nitrous oxide [N2O]) emissions and overall turfgrass quality."
