Abstract/Contents:Discusses the benefits of foliar fertilizer applications, also called spoon-feeding, at golf courses. States that "the major reason many golf course superintendents have adopted light and frequent foliar fertilization is to avoid peaks and valleys in the growth rate of the turf that can sometimes be experienced with granular applications." Explains how foliar fertilization can help promote recovery from damage and manage diseases on turf. States that "supplying the turf with nutrients on a regular basis throughout the season can also promote good turf health by avoiding any potential deficiencies that could trigger physiological decline or reduced stress tolerance." Compares foliar fertilization with granular products. Discusses the costs involved with implementing a foliar fertility program. States that "foliar fertility programs have demonstrated good results at golf courses throughout the United States."
