Abstract

The main aim of turfgrass fertilization is to maintain high turf quality and obtain proper turf colour. Fertigation has been recognized as the best fertilization method for proper turfgrass nutrition and for minimizing nitrogen leaching. The aim of this study was to determine the optimum fertilizer rate and frequency for obtaining high-quality turfgrass and minimizing nutrient losses using a fertigation system.
