Abstract/Contents:"A study was conducted in 2017 and 2018 at New Mexico State University to investigate the effects of soil surfactants on soil health and bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon L.) quality when deficit irrigated. Treatments were applied in a split block arrangement, with two levels of irrigation (75% and 45% of reference evapotranspiration for short grass) as main plots and four surfactants and the control as subplots. Surfactants included in the study were a modified methyl capped block co-polymer (trade name Revolution), an alkyl polyglycoside (trade name Dispatch), a saponine which consisted of a natural wetting agent derived from Yucca schidigera (trade name Therm X-70), and a rhamnolipid biosurfactant (trade name ZONIX). Rhamnolipids are glycolipids (two rhamnoses conjugated to fatty acid chains) produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Soil samples were collected in November of each year and subjected to phospholipid fatty acid analysis to estimate the total arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi biomass, total bacteria biomass (TBB), diversity index, fungi to bacteria ratio, total microbial biomass (TMB), and total fungi biomass (TFB). In 2017, plots treated with Revolution had higher TBB, TFB, and TMB than the control treatment. However, in 2018, none of the soil measurements showed significant treatment effects. When data were averaged over all sampling dates, turf quality did not differ between treatments in 2017. In 2018, however, soil surfactants improved turf quality at both irrigation levels when compared to the control."
