Abstract/Contents:Discusses a field study conducted to investigate whether irrigation methods affect carbohydrate metabolism in creeping bentgrass, focusing on summer drought tolerance. States that during the study, "each plot...was bordered by fiberglass polymer edging set 4 inches...deep in the soil to minimize lateral movement of water. A 2-foot...creeping bentgrass perimeter border separated each plot." Reports that creeping bentgrass that received deep, infrequent irrigation had lower canopy net photosynthesis on all six measuring dates when compared with plots irrigated lightly and infrequently. Highlights the potential importance of maintaining a favorable water status to plants adapted to conditions with limited water availability. Concludes that "creeping bentgrass showed reduced canopy net photosynthesis, but generally unchanged respiration rate in response to deep, infrequent irrigation."
