Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted at the University of Georgia "to determine water use, rooting/water extraction relations, shoot growth, and evaluation of drought resistance mechanisms." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "the study is on a Cecil sandy clay loam." Reports that "zoysiagrass and centipedegrass had higher water use rates than bermudagrass by 5 to 30% [percent] and 4 to 23% (well-watered), and 39 and 11% (moderate stress), respectively." Concludes that "data is being obtained for these three species on various plant characteristics that may influence water use rates."
