maintenance costs ( Fry et al., 2008 ). Differences in divot injury recovery were investigated among zoysiagrass cultivars ( Karcher et al., 2005 ; Trappe et al., 2011b ), shade and traffic tolerance ( Trappe et al., 2011a ), as well as clipping yield

clipping yield and potential nitrate leaching. Low N availability can lead to N deficiency and limit plant growth ( Hull and Liu, 2005 ). Therefore, efficient use of N has been a major goal in turfgrass management and understanding the physiology of N

indicated return of clippings could increase long-term C sequestration up to 25% ( Qian et al., 2003 ). Yet, similar clipping yields between CMB and fertilizer-grown sod, which equaled 25% of increases of SOC in the present study, indicated other C sources

hybrid bermudagrass for PB only refers to the effects on clipping yield, root mass, root length, and shoot density of dwarf types ( McCullough, 2005a , 2005b ). Chlormequat chloride also belongs to the group of GA inhibitors but is currently labeled for

WUE during drydown was associated with less leaf firing and wilting tendency in kentucky bluegrass ( Poa pratensis ), but the WUE measured as clipping yield-to-water loss ratio may not always be a reliable predictor of turf performance under drought
