UConn MLSN Project

soil sampling on a putting green

We are recruiting New England golf course superintendents to participate in a Minimum Level of Sustainable Nutrition (MLSN) research project conducted by the Turfgrass Science Program at the University of Connecticut and funded by the GCSAA and New England Regional Turfgrass Foundation.

The MLSN is a new soil test interpretation and fertilizer recommendation approach proposed by Micah Woods (Asian Turfgrass Center) and Larry Stowell (PACE Turf, LLC). This procedure identifies the minimum concentration of a soil nutrient that supports “good” turf growth, desirable turf quality, and performance. We think it is important to provide MLSN guidelines in relation to New England soils.
