Abstract/Contents:Offers suggestions for managing salt levels on putting greens in Wisconsin. States that "salt problems are not common on Wisconsin soils; however, increasing restrictions on potable water supplies will make the use of pooer quality water for irrigation a more attractive option for golf course superintendents." Explains that "monitoring irrigation water and soils that are suspected to be affected by salts are important practice regardless of the irrigation water source." Cautions that "high levels of salt in the soil can cause a conditions known as physiological drought. Physiological drought occurs when salt accumulation in the soil inhibits water uptake by the turf." States that "management of salt problems involves basically the over-application of water to leach salts out of the root zone. On sand-based systems, large amounts of water can be applied at one time to alleviate the problem. For soils with lower infiltration rates, irrigation must be applied gradually by applying amounts slightly greater than ET [evapotranspiration rate]."
