Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study "to determine the effects of biosolid (sewage sludge) compost on soil and turf quality, disease severity, and weed and insect pressures on the two most common turf species in Ohio lawns grown on subsoil." Results indicate "that the incorporation of biosolid compost on poor-quality subsoil can facilitate turfgrass establishments." Also, the results "demonstrated the feasibility of using biosolid compost, a recycled urban waste, in an environmentally sound manner."
