Abstract/Contents:This is the fourth progress report of this investigation concerning cutting height and nitrogen fertility requirements of Paspalum vaginatum Sv. For 1988 and 1989, visual turfgrass quality was assessed biweekly by two scientists. Quality estimates were based on (a) uniformity of appearance and (b) shoot density. The lower cutting heights resulted in higher turfgrass quality, as did the higher levels of nitrogen. The lower cut turfs exhibited better fall low temperature color retention. Spring greenup ratings for 1989 responded to the cutting height treatments similar to the other turf parameters assessed. These data strongly suggest that cutting height, and not nitrogen fertility level, is the controlling factor in maintaining a quality Adalayd seashore paspalum turf. A height of cut of 0.5 inch (13 mm) was best for turfgrass quality, and fall low temperature color retention.
