  • GreenPIG Rate Titration and Evaluation of Preventative Rates Applied alone or Combined with Fairphyte (1-0-26 + 26% phosphite) to Effectively Manage Pythium (Pythium spp.). Gaussoin, R. and M. Sousek, University of Nebraska (2011)

    Grigg Brothers is introducing a new pigmented product for the turfgrass management market called GreenPIG™, designed to improve turfgrass color and quality on golf course putting greens and fairways. Fairphyte® (1-0-26) provides an effective potassium phosphite source used as one component to an integrated pythium management strategy.
     
    Two studies were initiated to determine 1.) Effect of different GreenPIG rates on turfgrass color 2.) Compatibility of GreenPIG and Fairphyte 3.) Impact of GreenPIG, Fairphyte or the comGreenPIG Rate Titration and Evaluation of Preventative Rates Applied alone or Combined with Fairphyte (1-0-26 + 26% phosphite) to Effectively Manage Pythium (Pythium spp.).   Gaussoin, R.… Read More +
  • Foliar uptake of nutrients applied in solution to Creeping Bentgrass, Annual Bluegrass (Poa annua), and Ultra-Dwarf Bermudagrass (2009)

    {attachments}

    Liquid applications of nutrients to turfgrass are a routine management practice. A better understanding of nutrient chelating chemistry coupled with a measurable increase in products marketed to turfgrass professionals purported to facilitate effective and efficient absorption of nutrients into turfgrass leaves has resulted in a need for a better understanding of the capacity of turfgrass species to absorb essential nutrient elements. Research was conducted with the objectives to 1) determine the foliar uptake of nutrients in solution to Creeping Bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.), Annual Bluegrass (Poa annua var. reptans (Hausskn.) Timm) and Ultra-Dwarf Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon x C. transvaalensis… Read More +

  • Evaluation of Spray Volume Requirement for Optimal Foliar Applications (2004)

    Evaluation of Spray Volume Requirement for Optimal Foliar Applications (2004)

     

    Objective: Research was conducted in 2004 at the John Seaton Anderson Turf and Ornamental Research Center near Mead, NE to determine optimum spray volume for application of foliar-applied fertilizers.

    Method: Experiments were performed on a 3-year-old stand of ‘L-93’ creeping bentgrass with a California-style root zone. Plot size was 5’ x 10’ with treatments applied with a CO2 driven backpack sprayer equipped with a 8002V flat-fan nozzle on July 8, 2004. Two applications of Grigg Brothers Gary’s Green were applied at 6 oz/1000ft2 (0.09 lb. N/1000ft2) 2… Read More +

  • Evaluation of Biomass Reduction Agents on Surface Organic Matter and Thatch Content in Golf Course Putting Greens (2004)

    Evaluation of Biomass Reduction Agents on Surface Organic Matter and Thatch Content in Golf Course Putting Greens (2004)


    Summary: Organic matter accumulation in the upper 5 cm of the root-zone is a primary reason why putting greens lose the capacity to take water. Organic matter accumulation and thatch formation result from both living and nonliving plant material and soil micro-organisms located near the putting green surface. Too much thatch can be detrimental to turf health and decrease chemical and fertilizer efficiency. Therefore, turf managers are continually monitoring and making efforts to limit thatch development. Sand topdressing… Read More +

    Foliar and Granular Nutrition of a Sand Based Sports Turf Field (2004) 


    Objective: Research experiment was conducted in 2004 at the John Seaton Anderson Turf and Ornamental Research Center near Mead, NE to evaluate several foliar fertilizers for improved Kentucky bluegrass quality.

    Method: Experiments were performed on a 1 year old stand of Rutgers Kentucky bluegrass blend grown on a 90:10 (v/v) sand:Dakota reed-sedge peat. Plot size was 5’ x 10’ with initial treatments applied on June 25, 2004. All liquid applications were made with a CO2 driven backpack sprayer equipped with a… Read More +

  • Foliar Application Effects on Leaf Thickness of Ultradwarf Bermudagrass and Creeping Bentgrass (2008)

    Foliar Application Effects on Leaf Thickness of Ultradwarf Bermudagrass and Creeping Bentgrass (2008)-University of Nebraska, Roch Gaussoin, PhD

     

    Objective: Research was conducted to determine if foliar nutrition would alter the leaf thickness of treated plants. While this would not be an expected response based on past research on turfgrass nutrition there have been unsubstantiated reports in the field of this perceived response. This perception also results in an additional perception that thicker leaves would result in slower ball roll. This perception exists in spite of previous research has shown that certain growth regulators will cause a leaf to thicken… Read More +
