Abstract/Contents:"This study was carried out to examine the effects of cornstarch-based absorbent polymer (CAP) on the growth of cool season turfgrasses in sand-based soil mixture. Kentucky bluegrass + perennial ryegrass mixtures seeded at May 18 in 2006 on sand-based soil mixture. Sand + peat (5%, v/v), sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2, sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v), and sand + CAP 40g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v) mixtures were compared. Ground coverage of sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v), and sand + CAP 40g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v) treatments showed 50% at a month after seeding. But the coverage of sand + peat (5%, v/v), sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2 resulted in 36.7%. Mixing of CAP with sand was considered to be efficient method for increasing ground coverage as much as peat. Dry weight of turfgrass tiller at sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v), and sand + CAP 40g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v) were also significantly higher than sand + peat (5%, v/v), sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2 mixtures at a month after seeding. Soil water retention at the sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2, sand + CAP 40g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v) mixing were lower than sand + peat (5%, v/v) and sand + CAP 20g 路 m-2 + peat (5%, v/v) during the dry periods. From the results, the mixing of CAP with sand is useful to increased ground coverage of kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass."
