The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Fertilizing Twin Cities Lawns.

Schultz, John W. and Terry H. Cooper.

A 1995 study of homeowners' practices in fertilizing their suburban yards found that homeowners are not following the best practices for developing and maintaining healthy lawns. Not enough nitrogen and too much phosphorous are being applied. Taking phosphorous out of commercial mixtures could help, as would marketing fertilizers appropriate to the season. Nitrogen, especially, needs to be applied in the fall. More public awareness about soil testing is also needed.
