Soil conditions for the best turf today

These slides were used in my presentation at the Oregon GCSA fall meeting. With Larry Stowell and Wendy Gelernter from PACE Turf, I helped to conduct the Global Soil Survey (GSS). This project invited turfgrass managers from around the world to submit samples from good-performing turf at their facilities. Based on an analysis of the properties of these samples, I have many interesting things to explain and to suggest about turfgrass nutrient management.

This is a different project than the well-known MLSN, although I’ve heard some people use the GSS and MLSN interchangeably. I explain exactly what the GSS is, what the results were, how the results compare to MLSN, and what the implications are for fine turf management in the current era.
