Abstract/Contents:"Phosphorus fertility on golf course greens is an important issue due to the possibility ofleaching [of leaching] from sandy soils and the ability of phosphorus to affect plant growth. The useof [use of] alumina bound phosphorus (Al-P), a solid phase phosphorus buffer, was examined forits [for its] ability to reduce phosphorus leaching from establishing golf course greens and to alterplant [alter plant] growth. The Al-P is mixed into the soil and buffers the soil solution at a specificphosphorous [specific phosphorus] concentration. A preliminary pot study has shown that Al-P can be used toalter [to alter] turf growth and to reduce phophorus leaching and during turfgrass establishment. After 8 weeks of growth in a sand-peat mixture, all treatments showed similar growthincluding [growth including] the no phosphorus treatment and a reduction in leaching was observed in the nophosphorous [no phosphorus] and the Al-P fertilized plots. In 100% sand, traditional fertilizers had themost [the most] prolific growth followed by the Al-P fertilized pots and the no phosphoroustreatments [phosphorus treatments] had the least amount of growth. The results of a larger more extensive studyusing [study using] a pure sand simulated golf green profile and both creeping bentgrass and annualbluegrass [annual bluegrass] will be discussed."
