Nitrogen harvested in clippings: calculation update for 2024

Tifeagle ultradwarf bermudagrass grass clippings awaiting volume measurement

I use a method based on clipping harvest and normal leaf nitrogen content to find the estimated nitrogen harvest. I adjust this based on species, because there are differences in the clipping volume to dry mass conversion based on what type of leaf we are working with. There are also differences between species in leaf N content, as you’ll see in the posts listed below.

My explanation of this method is something I wrote about in March as Nitrogen harvested in clippings: calculation update for 2024. I published that as a PACE Turf update.

This list shows titles for some of the updates published in the past five months.

PACE Turf members get an email each week with the new updates. Members also get weather alerts which contain pest, turf and weather forecasts, customized for your location.

This is a reminder that I publish a lot of new information at PACE Turf too, so please become a member if you aren’t already. At the moment it’s only USD $275 per year for full access to the entire PACE turf information service.
