Abstract/Contents:"The evaluation of the nutritional status of sports turf is often based on its visual aspect, and is thus rather subjective. Soil and plant analysis is quite time and cost consuming and interpretation of the data is not always easy, so that it is not carried out regularly. Especially the nitrogen nutrition of grass plants has a dominant effect on the optical aspect and wear resistance of a grass sward. However, it is not possible to obtain information about minor short-term changes, though this would be of great interest to green keepers and researchers. The use of an optical sensor ensures objective results, and measurements can be carried out very quickly. This study was conducted to establish whether valid correlations exist between growth, N-status and the spectral reflectance of turf grass."
