Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Quantify water flow and movement of NO3 and NH4 through a large-scale sand-based putting green under actual golf course conditions. 2. Demonstrate the effect of nitrogen fertilization and application methods on sand-based putting greens to promote environmental safety and support the highest level of turfgrass quality. 3. Explore monitoring root growth and water movement utilizing computerized mesorhizotron technology newly developed at Washington State. 4. Monitor movement of nutrients (other than N) and pesticides. 5. Develop water movement models and calibration in sand-based greens." The research "is being conducted on the floating, 14th green at the Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho." Results indicate that "low N leachate, accompanied by high clipping N from frequent, light fertilizer applications, suggests a low potential for negative environmental impact."
