Abstract/Contents:"A study was initiated in 1982 to determine the water use rates of four species of turfgrass in a semi-arid environment. 'Texoka' Buffalograss [Buchloe dactyloides (Nutt.) Engelm], 'Meyer' Zoysiagrass [Zoysia japonica Steud.], 'Midiron' Bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.], which are warm season turfgrasses and a cool season grass, 'Kentucky 31' Tall Fescue [Festuca arundinacea Schreb.], were established under a rainout shelter. Plots received supplemental irrigations (7.6 cm) upon the occurrence of visual water stress. Median nitrogen fertility levels were maintained for each species. Results indicate Tall Fescue and Zoysiagrass required more water and extracted soil water at a faster rate than Bermudagrass and Buffalograss. Canopy temperature measurements indicate that Tall Fescue and Zoysiagrass had higher rates of transpiration."
