Course Description:
This presentation will discuss the significance of nitrogen as a molecule, and its importance to the many plant functions as it relates growth, color, and turfgrass quality. Attendees will also learn about the relationship of nitrogen to the effectiveness of other nutrients as well as how fertilization fits into a best management strategy for over all successful turfgrass management.
