Abstract/Contents:"The present research was conducted on an experimental putting green constructed in 1992/1993 for the purpose of establishing how different types of root zone mixes affect the long-term quality of sand matrix putting greens. Treatment variables include seven different amendments, six organic and one inorganic, [Canadian peat, Michigan peat, Reed sedge peat, Wisconsin peat, Iowa peat, Rice hulls, and Isolite], and three sands [WPL sand, Lycon sand, and Pure sand]. The objectives of the research are: (1) to continue evaluation of the influences of the amendments on the quality and fundamental characteristics of the greens, and (2) to determine whether or not the amendments significantly influence the N, P, and K nutrition of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.)."
