Abstract/Contents:"Subsurface irrigation of turfgrasses minimizes conflicts between turf users and irrigation water and equipment. It reduces pump, power and pipe size requirements. However, subsurface irrigation systems inherently provide a non-uniform distribution of moisture and dissolved minerals. Theoretically, lateral water movement from underground emitters will be enhanced as the clay and organic matter content of the soil increases, and as the water emission rate increases. A region of turgid 'Tifgreen' bermudagrass turf (Cynodon, sp.) on Pompano fine sand developed approximately 30 cm (12 inches) either side of subsurface irrigation lines containing multiple water emitting points, suggestion that a maximum line spacing of 60 cm (2 feet) would be acceptable. Incorporation of pine bark mulch or clay into the top 15 cm (six inches), while increasing the amount of water held in the surface, did not significantly improve the appearance of the turf or affect the size of the region of turgid turf. Several observations were made indicating nonuniform moisture and nutrient distribution laterally from water emitters."
