Abstract/Contents:Defines drought resistance "as the means that plants use to withstand periods of drought. Turfgrasses use three types of drought resistance to reduce drought stress and injury." Discusses drought avoidance, tolerance, and escape. States that "mowing, fertilization, irrigation, plant growth regulators and other cultural practices influence turfgrass drought resistance. These cultural practices, alone or in combination, can be manipulated to reduce ET [evapotranspiration] rates, increase depth and extent of rooting, and enhance hardiness."
