Abstract/Contents:"There is much concern in the general public, government regulators and environmentalists as to the impact of fertiizers and pesticides applied to golf courses on water quality. The early studies in this area suggests that fertilizers and pesticides applied to turf had little or no impact on groundwater quality. However, these studies were of limited scope (few or one soil, limited number of pesticides and climatic factors). The objective of this project was to develop a better understanding of the factors and conditions that lead fertilizers leaching from golf fairways. The leaching of fertilizer elements (NO3-N, NH4-N and PO4-P) were evaluated under well maintained fairway conditions and three soils types (sand, Arkport sandy loam and Hudson silt loam). Normal and extremely wet precipitation conditions were also evaluated...The ARESTS facility was utilized for this purpose where soil types (sand, silt loam and sandy loam) and post application precipitation factors could be studied. An additional objective was to compare two ways of evaluating the fate of N by using a traditional N source and analytical methods compared to a heavy N isotope (N15) N fertilizer source and a ratio mass spectrophotometer for quantification. The site used for this study was the ARESTS (Automated Rainfall Exclusion System for Turfgrass Studies) Facility located at the Cornell University Turfgrass Field Research Laboratory, Ithaca, NY..." Includes methods and results of the experiment.
