Abstract/Contents:Presents ongoing research conducted "to: (i) quantify the effects of two wetting agents on the drought performance and irrigation requirements of annual bluegrass and three bentgrass species when water is completely withheld; and (ii) evaluate the effects of wetting agents on recovery of these species from drought stress when water is available through irrigation/rainfall." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "the proposed project will be conducted in a fully automated, mobile rainfall shelter." Concludes that "the experiment will be conducted from June 1 through the end of October in 2009 and will be repeated in 2010 and 2011."
