Management Calendar

This calendar is a basic guide to turfgrass management in Georgia. The different geographic locations and weather conditions within the state may alter this schedule by as much as four weeks. The schedule can also change within a site because of environmental factors such as moisture, temperature, shade, soil types and conditions, and pest populations. For additional turf management information, contact your county Extension office. Full Text : PDF


Fertilization

A regular fertilization program is important to maintain healthy, attractive turf. It should include applying the correct type and amount of fertilizer at the right time. Proper fertilization is generally the most cost-effective practice to have a nice lawn. However, fertilization must be combined with proper mowing, watering and pest management for the best results.

 

Plant Analysis - Turf

One of the major factors affecting the growth of turfgrass and turf quality is its nutritional status. The nutrient status of turfgrass is often an "unseen" factor, except when the concentration of a nutrient becomes so acute that it adversely affects the desired growth characteristics, or deficiency or toxicity symptoms appear on the grass.
