Abstract/Contents:Presents a research proposal to be conducted "to compare the water use and crop coefficients of three turf species maintained under diverse culture representing low and high maintenance conditions typical of recreational turf." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "evapotranspiration (ET) rates of individual plots are to be measured using the gravimetric mass balance method with minilysimeters to represent actual turfgrass ET." Overviews expected results for the study, mentioning that "we believe that this research will provide meaningful data that is urgently needed by professional turf managers to efficiently schedule irrigation to lawn and recreational turf."
