Abstract/Contents:"Differences in soil microenvironment affect the availability of N in small areas of large turfgrass stands. Optical sensing may provide a method for assessing plant N needs among these small areas and could help improve turfgrass uniformity. The purpose of this study was to determine if optical sensing was useful for measuring turfgrass responses stimulated by N fertilization. Areas of `U3' bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon 9L.) Pers.], `Midfield' bermudagrass [C. dactylon 9L.) Pers. × C. transvaalensis Burtt-Davy], and `SR1020' creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.) were divided into randomized complete blocks and fertilized with different N rates. A spectometer was used to measure energy reflected from the turfgrass within the experimental units at 350 to1100 [to 1100] nm wavelengths. This spectral information was used to calculate normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and green normalized difference vegetation index (GNDVI). These specral indices were regressed with tissue N and chlorophyll content determined from turfgrass clippings collected immediately following optical sensing. The coefficients of determination for NDVI and GNDVI regressed with tissue N averaged r2 = 0.76 and r2 = 0.81, respectively. The coefficients of determination for NDVI and GNDVI regressed with chlorophyll averaged r2 = 0.70 and r2 = 0.75, respectively. Optical sensing was equally effective for estimating turfrass responses to N fertilization as more commonly used evaluations such as shoot growth rate (SGR regressed with tissue N; r2 = 0.81) and visual color evaluation (color regressed with chlorophyll; r2 = 0.64)."
