Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted from 2008-10 to determine the influence of nitrogen fertility and mowing height on zoysiagrass management. Notes that three objectives of the study were to "(1) characterize a general response (color, density, turf quality, thatch accumulation, and disease incidence) to nitrogen fertilization, mowing, and their interactions among zoysiagrass cultivars," "(2) determine how nitrogen source affects the turf quality, density, and color of zoysiagrass cultivars," and "(3) establish appropriate mowing height and fertility recommendations for each of the cultivars studied." Details methods and materials used during the study, stating that "plots were maintained from 2002 to 2007 using 1-2 lb N/1000 ft2/year [pounds nitrogen per square feet per year]." Reports that "results after three years indicate that turf density is improved through cultivar selection and N [nitrogen] fertility." Concludes that "there is no advantage to using more than 2 lb N/1000 ft2/year."

USGA Summary Points:Turf density was greatest for 'Meyer' and 'Cavalier' compared to 'El Toro'. Turf density was improved when fertilizing ≥2 lb N/1000 ft2/year Spring green-up was fastest for 0.5-inch mown plots. Among 1.5-inch mown plots, higher nitrogen rates (≥4 lb N/1000 ft2/year) decreased spring green-up Scalping was greatest when mowing at 0.5-inch and fertilizing with 6 lb N/1000 ft2/year Turf quality was generally highest for 'Meyer' and 'Cavalier'. Turf quality was highest in the spring among 1.5-inch mown plots, when receiving less than 4 lb N/1000 ft2/year. There was no advantage to fertilizing more than 2 lb N/1000 ft2/year. Turf quality was never unacceptable for the unfertilized check plots Nitrogen source did not affect turf quality in the field
