Abstract/Contents:Presents a study on the "[examination of] irrigation frequencies that maintain high-quality turf with reduced use of water for creeping bentgrass, colonial bentgrass, and velvet bentgrass under fairway management regimes." Provides information on the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "treatments [included] irrigation at four frequency intervals...mini-lysimeters were constructed...[and] turfgrass quality was visually rated." Indicates that "during the spring and fall, irrigating three times a week did not provide significantly better turfgrass quality across the three species when compared with plots irrigated one or two time per week." Concludes that "it is advisable to adjust irrigation frequency of bentgrass to two or three times a week during periods of hot weather."
