dc.description.abstractThree slow release fertilizers were evaluated (Contec O.M. Scotts) for turfgrass performance on an overseeded Tifway bermudagrass green from May to October 1998. Products were applied on four dates at the rate of 0.5 and 1.50 lbs. actual -N- per thousand square feet. All fertilizer regime showed little response from June-July for turfgrass clippings, color and quality. After July, differences in color and clippings were detected on X out of X evaluation dates. In general, release/conversion responses occurred approximately one month after application. When coupled with subsequent series applications, the combination of released nitrogen with the water soluble component (approximately 10%) caused the greatest turf response. Clipping production was greatest for the X at the rate of X. Transition from ryegrass to bermudagrass was not affected by fertilizer rate. Additional rates should be tested to investigate seasonal performance of these fertilizers on bermudagrass turfs.
