Abstract/Contents:"Few studies have been made in which grass has been grown under the combined influence of controlled nitrogen nutrition, temperature, and reaction of the culture medium. In the present series of experiments Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) was chosen as a representative grass. It is sometimes grown in the field under semi-controlled nutrient conditions and differs widely in development with seasonal variation in temperature and soil reaction. The experimental plants were grown in crocks in which the supply of nitrogen as nitrate or ammonium, the soil temperatures, and the acidity of the nutrient solutions were controlled. Measurements of leaf and root growth were taken to express development under the environmental conditions maintained and to determine the effects of periodic clipping." Includes: methods, results with unclipped plants, results with clipped plants, temperature relations, acidity relations, nitrogen relations, summary and discussion.
