Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to determine the effects of evapotranspiration (ET), application efficiency, effective rainfall, leaching requirements, range of available soil moisture, conveyance losses, and system operation efficiencies on water requirements of lawn grasses. Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "a lysimeter installation at the University of Nevada Main Station Field Laboratory near Reno was used to determine the maximum water requirements of lawngrass...Evaporation and net radiation were measured and ET was calculated for weekly intervals for the 1965, 1966 and 1967 growing seasons." Reports that "radiant energy governs moisture use by plants when soil moisture and vegetative cover are adequate. When the water supply in the soil is limited, ET is principally a function of the amount of soil water. Vegetative cover significantly affects soil moisture use only when plant density is a limiting factor."
