Abstract/Contents:Describes nitrogen fertilization as a promoter of rapid recovery from wear damage in bermudagrass turf. Describes quantity and frequency of nitrogen application. Suggests to "apply fertilizer containing other nutrients based on soil tests." States that "potassium probably increases traffic tolerance indirectly by increasing turfgrass tolerance to physiological stresses caused by the environment, such as drought." Describes N application rates for bermudagrass that has been overseeded with cool-season grass. States that "no fertility program can prevent turf loss in areas subjected to excessively high traffic, so reseeding or resodding some areas will occasionally be necessary." Also describes how to determine the amount of fertilizer to apply.
Note:Includes sidebar, "Calculating fertilizer nutrient application rates," p. 3
