The effects of N fertiliser regimes on N leaching and turfgrass quality during the establishment and maintenance of Kikuyu turfgrass (Pennisetum clandestinum (Holst. Ex Chiov)) were evaluated in a 24 month field study. Treatments included two turfgrass ages (established from 20 week or 20 year old turfgrass, the later included a 50 mm ‘mat’ layer), three N application rates (50, 100 or 150 kg N ha−1 yr−1) and three application frequencies (every 4 weeks, 4 applications per year, 2 applications… CONTINUE READING
