Turfgrass managers are really growth rate managers. Clipping yield influences turfgrass performance, plant health, and nutrient requirements. While it is understood that nitrogen generally increases growth rate, other factors such as temperature, sunlight, and plant growth regulators can alter nitrogen responsiveness. In this 90-minute webinar, Bill Kreuser, Ph.D., challenges conventional notions of turfgrass growth response. He discusses the link between growth rate and fertilization requirements under different environmental and management conditions. Listen in to learn tips you can use this growing season.
