Abstract/Contents:"In your talk you may wish to comment on our work on water management. Plots of Merion bluegrass have been established to study irrigation practices required for the maintenance of acceptable turf. There are three irrigation treatments, wet (when 1/3 of total available water used), medium (when 2/3 of total available water used and dry (when approximately all the available water has been used and grass just begins to show wilting). These irrigation treatments will be carried out under two heights of clipping (1/2 and 1 1/2 inched) and under two or three levels of nitrogen fertilization. Observations or [of] data will be obtained on the influence of these irrigation treatments (at the two clipping heights and fertility levels) on the general appearance of the two clipping heights and fetility levels, on the geneal appearance of the turf, growth, summer dormancy of bluegrass, turf density, weed encroachment, disease incidence (particularly brown patch), root distribution and water requirements. Another study is in progress to determine the depth of rooting, the water requirements, and the relative drought resistance of Alta vs. K-31 fescue, Merion vs. Kentucky bluegrass, Illahee vs. F-74 fescue and chewings (Penn State) fescue, U-3 vs. common bermuda, and Z-52 vs. Zoysia matrella. We may include Poa annua in this study. Work is pretty well along on the study of the influence of porous mineral amendments on the water retention characteristics of soils."
