Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "investigate how three wetting agents affect the occurrence of LDS [localized dry spots] under conditions of drastically reduced irrigation on a sand-based putting green in the Upper Midwest [United States]." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "three wetting agents (Aqueduct, Primer 604, and Revolution; all from Aquatrols) [was] irrigated at 30% of estimated ET [evapotranspiration]." Reports that "during the first year, the soil moisture content in the upper 2 inches (5 centimeters) was usually greatest for the well-irrigated control, lowest for the reduced-irrigation control, and intermediate for the wetting-agent treatments." Concludes that "wetting agents can improve turfgrass quality and reduce LDS under severe water deficits."
