Abstract/Contents:"Examines the factors affecting the salt accumulation in irrigated fairways and roughs in golf course in arid areas of the Southwest." Details the quality of water sources in the Southwest, noting their levels of nutrients and salt as well as the water-quality guidelines for irrigation and experiences for courses in the Southwest. Explains water salinity and salt balance, suggesting equations for "the depth of drainage required to avoid salt accumulation" and "the quantity of irrigation required to meet the drainage requirement." Discusses irrigation systems and how their design is a common problem for salt accumulation. Mentions irrigation frequency as a factor relating to plant performance. Evaluates soil types as a factor in salt accumulation, noting a study that that indicated "that the salt concentration factor increases exponentially with increasing saturation water content, much more so in parks than in golf course fairways. Soil compaction likely accounts for difference." Includes soil stratification, topography, and assessing soil salinization potential as other points to take note of. Concludes with discussion on the adverse effects of high sodicity on soil structure and permeability, and other factors that encourage salt accumulation in soils that were not mentioned in research.
