Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Extend our current column lysimeter study comparing six different warm-season turfgrasses for NO3 leaching and nitrogen efficiency. 2. Measure root architecture (depth, density, dynamics) and other root characteristics (cation exchange capacity, carbohydrate release, microbial association, viability) for the six species. 3. Measure the kinetic parameters of nitrogen uptake for each species. 4. Determine whether root architecture or uptake kinetics explains the differences between the species. 5. Use a state-of-the-art-flow-through nutrient solution culture system to screen germplasm for nitrogen uptake efficiency and to simultaneously determine rootng depth of the genotypes. 6. Use genotypes identified in objective five to validate the conclusions regarding rooting architecture vs. uptake kinetics as a primary determinant of nitrogen efficiency." This five-year study will begin in 1998.
