USGA Summary Points:A column study will be conducted in 2018. The objectives of the study are to determine how root zone chemistry and Fe rate affect formation of potential layers in the soil. Preliminary data show that putting greens with high pH gravel layers may be more prone to formation of Fe-enriched layers when high rates of iron are applied. Root zones with high pH sand may be less likely to form layers at the sand/gravel interface due to immobilization of Fe near the surface. In 2018-2019, soil samples will be collected from at least 50 golf courses to determine the distribution of Fe-cemented layers, and to create and validate a model to explain their formation.
