Abstract/Contents:Presents a study to "determine the quantity and form of gaseous nitrogen losses from turf," and to "develop long-term (20+ years) field plots examining the fate of nitrogen applied to a mature turf." Reports that "denitrification appears to be a significant loss mechanism in turf because even though the loss rates are generally small, losses occur frequently throughout the growing season. Denitrification losses accounted for 5-15% of applied LFN [labeled fertilizer nitrogen]." This five-year study began in 1998.

USGA Summary Points:Denitrification accounted for 5-15% of the applied labeled fertilizer nitrogen. This amount is higher than previously reported. Denitrification occurs routinely after rainfall or irrigation events and in large quantities following soluble nitrogen fertilizer applications. Two pounds of N/1000 ft2/yr showed low levels of nitrate leaching (usually between 1-3 mg/L), but this value is higher than previously reported. While turf is a good system, unecessary high levels of N fertilization can cause unacceptable levels of nitrate leaching.
