Abstract/Contents:"Efficient utilization of fertilizer-nitrogen (N) by turfgrass is probably related to N uptake efficiency of roots and metabolic efficiency of absorbed N in roots and shoots. This study evaluated Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) cultivars for potential differences in nitrate uptake rate (NUR), temporal variation in NUR, and the relationship between NUR and N use efficiency (NUE), defined as grams dry matter per gram N. Six cultivars were propagated from tillers of seeded plants, grown in silica sand, mowed weekly, and watered daily with a complete nutrient solution containing 1.0 mM nitrate. A nutrient depletion method from an initial nitrate concentration of 0.5 nM was used to determinde NUR of 5-month-old plants. NUR (μmol⁻¹ per plant) of the six cultivars ranked as follows: 'Blacksburg', while none was noted in 'Conni' or 'Eclipse'. Cultivar differences in NUE were significant in fibrous roots, rhizomes, and leaf sheaths, but not in leaf blades and thatch. Total nitrate uptake was positively related to total N recovered and total plant dry matter, but NUR based on root weight was negatively correlated with NUE of the whole plant."
