Abstract/Contents:"This year was dedicated to the establishment and characterization of the runoff plots. Plots were established with creeping bentgrass and perennial ryegrass. Shortly after germination, irrigation was used to produce steady-state runoff, and hydrographs were generated from the runoff data. Ten weeks after seeding, fertilizer was applied at a rate of 1 lb N/1000 sq ft and plots were irrigated to produce runoff. Runoff and lysimeter samples were taken and frozen for analyses of nutrient content this winter. The hydrographs for the initial runoff show relatively high peak runoff rates and short time to peak flow. Hydrographs generated after fertilization, show an increase in the time to runoff and some peak flows had lowered. Hence, it would appear that even young turfgrass areas can significantly reduce total runoff, when compaired to the early seedling stage."
