Abstract/Contents:The objective of the study was to evaluate two Cedar Corporation turf fertilizer products. This evaluation was performed on turf under ideal conditions in a relatively high maintenance regime. Performance parameters, which included turf clipping yields and color development, provided a clear indication of both the initial availability of nitrogen and the duration of each product application. The best color maintained by any product over the greatest portion of study was turf treated with Cedar Multicoat. The 1.5 lb of nitrogen applied on 15 June maintained good to excellent turf well into September. The product K-Power followed a color response curve similar to that of ammonium nitrate and IBDU, both of which had faded considerably by late August. Clipping yields for both products followed a pattern similar to color development. Table 1 provides the clipping yields of 'Touchdown' Kentucky bluegrass to applications of Cedar Corporation fertilizer products. Table 2 lists visual quality ratings for 'Touchdown' Kentucky bluegrass treated with Cedar Corporation fertilizer products.
