Abstract/Contents:Examines nitrogen loss by monitoring "leachate flow and nutrient concentration on an entire golf course green receiving play" on a floating island green for three years, while the green is received normal maintenance. Explains that "by accurately monitoring flow through the rootzone and sampling the leachate to obtain nitrogen concentrations, the total quantity of nitrogen being leached could be determined." States that "the highest quantity of nitrogen was leached during late fall and late winter/early spring when water flow and nitrogen leachate concentrations were high and grass growth was minimal." Nitrogen levels also increased after fertilizer application, but never reached excessive levels. "Low leachate concentrations combined with high nitrogen content of the clippings suggests efficient nitrogen uptake by the grass."
