Abstract/Contents:Discusses factors that may influence water requirements for athletic fields, including turfgrass species, soil conditions, and weather. States that "turf, or any plant, should be irrigated in a manner that applies enough water to moisten as much of the root zone as possible." Details irrigation strategies for different soil types, mentioning that "the quantity of water to apply is also a function of the soil's texture, organic matter content, structure, and bulk density."
