USGA Summary Points:Species such as KBG and PRG maintained under tall HOC as sports turf used 25 to 30% more water as ETa than short grass CBG maintained as putting green and fairway turfs. Kc values derived as the ratio of ETa to ET0 were significantly lower for golf turf compared to sports grass. CBG exhibited 15% lower Kc values than PRG, and 30% lower Kc values than KBG turf. Seasonal Kc values during the 2011 summer irrigation season ranged from 0.98 for CBG to as high as 1.28 for KBG, with biweekly Kc values for CBG ranging from 0.90 to 1.05. Effects of N and HOC within the species on ETa and Kc values were not statistically significant. US EPA WaterSense proposed Kc values of 60 to 80% of reference ET0 may severely under estimate irrigation requirements for cool-season turfgrass species in the cool-humid New England region.
