Abstract/Contents:Details a method for determining irrigation distribution uniformity (DU). Explains that "a DU of 80 is considered about as good as it gets, and anything below 60 is generally frowned upon for golf turf." Summarizes a trial at the O.J. Noer Facility in Madison, Wisconsin on irrigation DU, and provides two maps of soil moisture based on different irrigation methods. Notes that "by ignoring the actual water content patterns in the soil, achieving a high DU is a meaningless activity."
