Utilization of industrial fermentation residues for turfgrass production.
Date of Original Version
Wastes were applied to an Enfield silt loam soil at rates of 0, 112 and 224 dry metric tons/ha, which provided 0, 2 778 or 5 556 kg N/ha, respectively. Plots were seeded with a mixture of 60% Kentucky bluegrass Poa pratensis cv. Merion, 20% perennial ryegrass Lolium perenne cv. Manhattan and 20% Chewings fescue Festuca rubra ssp. commutata Gaud cv. Highlight. Nitrogen derived from mineralization of industrial fermentation wastes was sufficient to produce high quality turfgrass for two or three years without any supplemental N fertilizer. Wastes applied at 224 metric tons/ha inhibited germination and growth of turfgrass when seeded immediately after application.-from Authors
