Abstract/Contents:Demonstration gardens were established throughout the United States in order to test the impact of different climates and soil types as factors in research. Fertilizer trials were conducted on bentgrass (mixed bent) and Kentucky bluegrass. Monthly ratings were submitted from May to October. Consideration was given to density, vigor, color, fineness, freedom from weeds, nap and any other factors which affected the quality of the grass for turf purposes. After a 5-year period, soil samples were taken and tested for acidity.
