Abstract: This study evaluates the performance of a sponsor’s fertilizer when applied to low-cut Kentucky Bluegrass in a soil rootzone. Data was collected measuring colour response, turf quality, density, uniformity, and resistance to disease/stress. In the experimental process, the test fertilizer was applied in 16 different rates and volumes and compared to an industry-standard, SCU 37-00-00, and a control. Results based on the NDVI values were as follows: SCU, L, A > H, D, P, B, O, N, M > J, E, F, C > G, Q > I >> Control. Whereas the rough results based on the dry matter accumulation with statistical overlap were: L, E, G, M, D, H, A > B, O, F, P, SCU, N, I, C, Q, J > Control. It was concluded that the majority of the pattern could be attributed to the number of applications and the rate of the treatment.
