USGA Summary Points:Current soil test methods may not be appropriate for sand-based methods A mixtures design was employed to measure the effect of different ratios of Ca, Mg, K, and H. There were no differences in quality and clipping weights of creeping bentgrass for either experiment. Tissue and soil analysis has been completed and adding Ca, Mg, or K appears to have increased the leaf concentration of those nutrients, respectively. Leaf tissue concentration of Ca was very high on both silica and calcereous sand, ranging from 7.5 - 17.5 g kg-1. Soil analysis from the greenhouse samples has been complete. Although, there were some deficiencies for soil exchangeable Ca, Mg, and K, there were no deficiencies in leaf Ca concentration, and only a few deficiencies for leaf Mg and K. Creeping bentgrass can tolerate a wide range of cation ratios.
