Abstract/Contents:"As discussed in the February, 1940 issue of Turf Culture, the limitations of soil tests are generally recognized. They are helpful, however, in planning local tests which can be made on limited areas of turf. The results of such tests not only help one to recognize to what fertilizers his turf can be expected to respond but also to interpret what a reading of 15, 35, 50 or 100 pounds of phosphoric acid to the acre means in terms of good turf on his soil. If you are interested in having your soils tested, this is a good time to do it, before planning your fall fertilizing program. The Green Section will be glad to make such test for any club that is a member of the United States Golf Association. Examinations will be made as promptly as possible, and as complete reports and recommendations as are justified will be made to the club."
