Increase the Precision of Your Nitrogen Application

Bill Kreuser, Ph.D.

Utilization of soil moisture probes for irrigation, environmental models for seed head and pest control, and GDD models to schedule PGR applications have increased the precision of turfgrass management over the past decade. Nitrogen fertilization scheduling, however, is still largely based on historical management practices and qualitative observations. Large-scale production agriculture has embraced remote plant sensing and soil testing to increase the precision of nitrogen application. Can you use these new technologies to increase the precision of nitrogen fertilization on your turfgrass? In this 90-minute webcast, Bill Kreuser, Ph.D., highlights current research in the area of nitrogen management and investigates the potential for technology to improve application precision on creeping bentgrass golf turf.
