Turfgrass Ecology. Effects of Mowing, Irrigation, and Nitrogen Treatments of Agrostis palustris Huds., ‘Seaside’ and Agrostis tenuis Sibth., ‘Highland’ on Population, Yield, Rooting, and Cover1

  1. John H. Madison2



Increasing nitrogen increased yield, verdure (quantity of green turf), and chlorophyll, and decreased rooting. Frequent irrigation (5 times per week) increased population and chlorophyll, and decreased verdure and rooting. Frequent mowing (5 times per week) decreased verdure and rooting in the 15- to 30-cm. soil layer. Shorter mowing increased population, and decreased verdure and rooting.
