USGA Summary Points:Thirty-five total entries in the Cool-Season Water Use and Drought Resistance trial were planted at ten locations in fall 2016/spring 2017. Five locations, located in high rainfall regions, induce drought via a rain exclusion shelter, while the other five locations, located in low rainfall regions, induce drought by restricting ETo replacement. Delays in obtaining and/or installing the needed infrastructure (either rain exclusion shelters or irrigation systems) prohibited the initiation of drought treatments at four locations. Drought treatments were initiated at six of the ten locations in 2017, with significant drought responses being noted among entries. The 40% ETo replacement level resulted in >95% grass kill at the Riverside, CA location. A warm-season water use/drought trial is now being developed, with planting in spring or summer 2018 at ten trial sites.
