Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted on 18 sand putting greens on two Wisconsin putting greens at the O.J. Noer Turfgrass Research and Education Facility in which the objective was "to gather preliminary information on the reliability of the DTPA test as a basis for recommending micronutrient applications on sand putting greens. This was approached as a two-stage process: (1) Testing the reliability of the DTPA method and (2) Testing the DTPA test interpretations used by a commercial soil testing laboratory." Lists creeping bentgrass tissue nutrient sufficiency ranges and deficiency symptoms, and shows the relationship and correlation between DTPA extractable Cu, Fe, Zn, and Mn to bentgrass clipping Cu, Fe, Zn, and Mn, respectively. Also provides the critical value for DTPA extractable soil Mn. Concludes that "the DTPA test provides no reliable information on the plant available Cu and Zn content of sand putting greens,...the DTPA test for Fe may have some value,...the DTPA test for Mn is judged to be a reliable method of analysis," and "further research is required regarding the critical value of the DTPA test for Mn."
