Abstract/Contents:Discusses plant and water relationships, including water absorption; water loss; and water use. States that "the total amount of water used by grasses range from 0.1 to 0.3 inch per day under normal conditions...Some factors which may increase the water-use rate include increased traffic, rapid plant growth, low osmotic pressure in the soil solution, increased transpiration rate, high management levels, and the particular turfgrass species in question." Mentions "management factors to improve water utilization," including mowing practices; irrigation practices; fertility level; turfgrass pests; traffic; and soil aeration. Suggests that "lowering the mowing height reduces the efficiency of water utilization."
