Abstract/Contents:"Greenhouse experiments were conducted in 2023 to evaluate the effects of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) fertilizer on the root growth and dry biomass accumulation of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) and tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) during establishment. Turfgrasses were grown from seeds in sand-filled acrylic tubes for around three months. Treatments included only-N, only-P, only-K, non-N, non-P, non-K, all fertilizer (NPK), and an unfertilized control. The results indicated that non-K treatment (N and P fertilizer only) increased total root length, longest root, root surface area, root volume, root dry biomass, and shoot dry biomass in creeping bentgrass compared to control and non-N treatment. This may be because K was already present in the soil. Creeping bentgrass showed shallower roots in only K fertilization, indicating that excess K may potentially cause inhibitory effects during creeping bentgrass establishment. Treatments contain N fertilizer also increased root growth and dry biomass in creeping bentgrass seedlings compared to N deficit treatments. In contrast, tall fescue root growth and biomass were not affected by the fertilizer treatments in this study. Overall, fertilizer application is essential during creeping bentgrass establishment, and the effect of N fertilizer is more significant compared to P and K fertilizer."
