Fertilize sustainably

STERF Fertilization Handbook

The first (2011) edition of this handbook summarized the knowledge and experiences gained in three research projects on fertilization funded by STERF in the period 2003-2011:

• Effect of precision fertilization on the growth, appearance and nitrogen utilization of turfgrasses

• Fertilizer strategies for golf turf: Implications for physiology-driven fertilization

• Impact of mowing height and autumn fertilization on winter survival of golf greens in the Nordic countries

The current (2021) handbook has been updated with the results from the STERF projects Optimal application of nitrogen and sulfur in autumn for better winter survival of turfgrasses and SUSPHOS: Sustainable phosphorus (P) fertilization on golf courses. While former STERF projects mostly focused on nitrogen (N), the aim of SUSPHOS was to investigate if P fertilization can be reduced on golf course putting greens without negative implications on turf quality. Information about these projects and popular and scientific papers can be found at www.sterf.org
