The purpose of this study was to assess the performance of the sponsor's fertilizer when added to creeping bentgrass with a high sand rootzone. 8 varieties of the sponsor's fertilizer at different concentrations and volumes were tested and compared to a control group. The general observations concluded that the treated plots performed higher than the control with 2x plots on average performing higher than plots treated once. More specifically fertilizers IHS 71152 and IHS 63241 performed well all season in both 1x and 2x. IHS 71151 was rated low at the beginning of the season for both 1x and 2x application but by the end of the season, the NDVI value was the highest for IHS 71151 2x treatment. IHS 63242 was low in both groups thought the whole season.
