Abstract/Contents:"World wide, lack of irrigation water is the most serious threat to development and expansion of golf courses and other turfgrass areas. As part of the STERF-funded project Evaporative demands and deficit irrigation on golf courses and other turfgrass areas, the objective of this research was to determine crop coefficients (Kc), i.e. the ratio between actual and reference evapotranspiration, of various turfgrass species on greens and fairways. Turfgrass water use was determined by daily pulling out and weighing metal cylinders (10 cm diameter, 30 cm deep, sealed bottom) that had been installed on greens and fairways at Landvik. During 2009 and 2010, the cylinders were weighed during six periods, each of of 5-12 days without rainfall. After each weighing, half of the cylinders were hand-irrigated to field capacity (as much water as the soil could hold) while the others remained unirrigated. Reference ET values were calculated from a local weather station using the FAO 56 version of the Penman Monteith equation. Kc at green mowing height (5 mm in Festuca spp. and 3 mm in Agrostis spp.) increased in the order A. canina < A. stolonifera < Festuca rubra ssp. commutata = F. rubra ssp. trichophylla < A. capillaris. We hypothesize that the surprisingly high Kc from the open and sandy red fescue greens was due to higher surface temperatures and more exposure to wind than on the dense and low-cut velvet- and creeping bentgrass greens. Another finding not previously reported was that the Kc were much higher (1.5-2.5) on the first day after irrigation to field capacity than on subsequent days (0.8-1.1). This implies that frequent irrigation to field capacity will greatly increase water use compared with deficit or wilt-based irrigation."
