Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted "to better understand turfgrass water use trends and identify irrigation practices which result in optimum plant-soil-water relations." States that "in 2003, research will continue to evaluate the use of data captured from ECH20 soil moisture sensors to conserve water and define best management practices for turf irrigation. This research will utilize the most recent version of the Penman-Monteith model for evapotranspiration estimation, commonly referred to as FAO 56, to compare water use and efficiency of different irrigation regimes and their impact on turf quality on [the] sand-based bentgrass/poa research green."
