Abstract/Contents:"The reduced water availability in Southern Italy during summer months is one of the most important factors that limit the utilization of turf in recreational, sport and amenity areas. This deficiency can be overcome, at least partially, by utilizing warm season grasses, that show good environmental adaptation to drought and heat stress, and by adopting good irrigation practices to reduce water consumption. The trial was carried out in Apulia region (Southern Italy) near the Adriatic sea. Two irrigation regimes V1 and V2, respectively equals to 50 and 75% of ETo were compared to irrigate five warm season grasses (Cynodon dactylon, Zoysia japonica, Pennisetum clandestinum,Stenotaphrum secundatum and Paspalum vaginatum) in a split-plot design with three replicates. The climatic course, particularly during July and August, characterized by low rainfall and hot temperatures, lowered turf quality scores; on the opposite, during June-September turf quality values were greater thanks to good rainfall and mild temperatures. Between irrigation treatments (V1 and V2) highest irrigation level, gave always better results, while among the species compared good performances were observed in Z. japonica, S, secundatum and P. clandestinum."
