Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "develop a novel method for concurrently comparing irrigation requirements among 30 cultivars of turfgrasses using a large rainout facility at Kansas State University." Describes the experiment and the methods used, stating that "the total amount of water applied averaged over the two summers varied significantly among cultivars and ranged from 8 to 20 inches during the four-month period."

USGA Summary Points:Twenty-eight cultivars of Kentucky bluegrasses and two Texas bluegrass hybrids were established under a large rainout shelter located in the transition zone. Individual cultivars were evaluated in the field from June through September, 2007 and 2009 for their visual quality and total water requirements during repeated dry-downs. Cultivars in the Compact America and Mid-Atlantic groups generally performed better (higher quality, lesser water requirements) and "Common" types poorer (lower quality, greater water requirements) among phenotypic groups although there was significant variability even among cultivars within each group. There was a broad range in the rooting characteristics among cultivars. Greenhouse rooting characteristics measured were not correlated with water applied in the field study.
