Abstract:

Turf grasses are used in various sports field garden and considered as ‘Heart of Garden’. so keeping all this in view a well refined protocol needs to be standardized for increase more knowledge and information regarding grasses. Nitrogen plays vital role in plant growth and chlorophyll formation in plants. Turf grasses are also affected by the N mineralization. So investigate size and height in turf (Moving) is very important. Two field experiments were carried out at Central Research Field Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj -211007, U.P. (India) during the year 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 respectively. This study was under taken to examine the standardizing the suitable protocol for turf growing grass farm grown in temperate and subtropical climate. Two turf grasses Buffalo grass and Bermuda grass were grown with each comprising of treatments replicated thrice. Source of nitrogen was urea (46%) which was applied at 50, 100, 150 and 200 g N/m2/month. Nitrogen application improved different growth and biomass indices of turf grasses vigorously with 30 g N/m2/month application presenting superior results as compared to rest of the treatments for almost all parameters of study. Moreover, Bermuda grass responded better to N application than buffalo grass whereas seasonal variations were negligible with slight superiority of spring season over autumn in some cases. Therefore, optimum use of nitrogen fertilizer in small split doses would help better towards vigorous growth of turf grasses and to keep your lawns and green spaces attractive and healthy.
