Abstract/Contents:Answers the question: "A turfgrass newly planted on a high-sand root zone initially had good rooting, but subsequently exhibited a distinct loss of roots. What is the problem?" Discusses the influence of nutrient availability, which decreases due to leaching of water-soluble nutrients. Suggests that "a safe approach in terms of ensuring plant nutrient availability in the initial 2 to 3 months with a high-sand root zone is weekly foliar applications of a complete soluble fertilizer containing a full compliment of both macro- and micronutrients."
