Abstract/Contents:Present a study that investigated "whether or not summer salinity accumulation in the root zone can be used to predict turfgrass quality for several turfgrass species and varieties." Details the methods and materials used to perform the study, and explains the factors attributed to the grass, soil, pesticides, and irrigation methods used. Reports that "plots irrigated with moderately saline water had lower salinity readings than plots irrigated with saline water," and provides detailed accounts of each of the trials. Explains that rootzone depth plays a big contributing role in the levels of salt accumulation in turf, and that "seasonal changes in soil EC [electrical conductivity] and sodium content followed the irrigation and natural precipitation pattern, with higher values during the dry periods of the summer followed by lower values after the summer rains." Concludes that "most of the warm-season grasses included in this study can be maintained at an acceptable quality level when irrigated with saline water from a subsurface drip system...Warm-season turfgrasses maintained acceptable quality and were not affected by these soil salinities when these high levels were reached in a cyclic pattern followed by leaching."
