Utilizing Iron In Turfgrass Management

  title={Utilizing Iron In Turfgrass Management},
  author={David Wehner},
D r. George Wallace a researcher from UCLA, writing in HortScience called the 1980s the decade for advancement in our knowledge of iron (Fe) and plant nutrition. He states: "More progress was perhaps made in the 1980s on understanding and management of Fe chlorosis in plants than during the previous 150 years since it became known that Fe deficiency was involved in the chlorosis." Iron is used in a broad range of applications by turfgrass managers including treating iron deficiencies and using… 

Nitrogen and Iron Sulfate Affect Microdochium Patch Severity and Turf Quality on Annual Bluegrass Putting Greens

Evidence is provided that low rates of urea applied every 2 wk did not lead to an increase in Microdochium patch severity and that iron sulfate applications decreased MicrodoChium patch on annual bluegrass putting greens and despite the disease suppression observed, no treatment received a turf-quality rating considered acceptable.

Efficacy of non-conventional fungicides for the suppression of dollar spot disease caused by Clarireedia jacksonii

A significant darkening was observed with increasing rates of FSH, which led to phytotoxicity and scarring, especially during hotter periods, but on average, 1x FSH suppressed dollar spot disease by 74 to 78% and 95 to 99% respectively.



Foliar Application of N and Fe to Kentucky Bluegrass

The results of the study indicate that combining Fe with N can result in acceptable turfgrass color with lower rates of N, and application of Fe to turfgrass plants may enhance color without some of the negative aspects of excessive N fertilization.

Foliar-applied Iron Enhances Bermudagrass Tolerance to Herbicides

Field experiments were conducted to determine the effects of foliar iron (Fe) applied with postemergence herbicides on injury, color, and quality of 'Tifway' bermudagrass (Cynodon transvaalensis

The Decade of the 1980s for Iron Nutrition and Interactions in Plants

More progress was made in the 1980s on understanding and management of Fe chlorosis m plants than during the previous 150 years since it became known that Fe deficiency was involved in the chlorosis.

Comparison of iron analyses and iron chlorosis in Kentucky bluegrass cultivars

From visual chlorosis ratings, the cultivars Sydsport, Victa, and Glade were fairly tolerant and Park, Wabash, and Delta were fairly susceptible to Fe chlorosis when grown on a calcareous soil in the field.

Different strategies in higher plants in mobilization and uptake of iron

Abstract Higher plants differ considerably in their capability for mobilization of iron in the rhizospere of soils with low iron availability. In the plant kingdom at least two different Strategies

Selection for turf‐type bermudagrass genotypes with reduced iron chlorosis

Nine genotypes representing a range from low to high Fe‐efficiency from the original 81, were evaluated for differences in Fe‐ efficiency at two pH levels and three added Fe levels and indicate genotypes can be selected for Fe‐ Efficiency.

Carbon Dioxide Exchange of ‘Tifgreen’ Bermudagrass Exposed to Chilling Temperatures as Influenced by Iron and BA

‘Tifgreen’ bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. × C. transvaalensis Burtt-Davy] was exposed to 10°/7°C (day/night) temperatures following pretreatment with 120 mg Fe/m2 or 12.4 mg BA/m2 to

Correcting iron deficiency of Kentucky bluegrass

Iron chelates, iron salts, and acid-treated mine tailings significantly increased turfgrass greening of Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) when compared to control plots. Turf treated with iron
