Abstract/Contents:"Water conservation is increasingly important when selecting turfgrasses, especially in the southwestern United States. Deficit irrigation is a common practice for water conservation in areas where limited water is available. Warm-season turfgrasses are generally more drought resistant than cool-season grasses. Three species of warm-season grasses, bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.), buffalograss (Buchloe dactyloides), and zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.) were evaluated under deficit irrigation conditions at Riverside, CA. The objective of this study was to determine the amount of water needed to sustain acceptable turfgrass quality. A four-year study was initiated in 2018. After turf was fully established in the first year under non-limiting irrigation, plots were irrigated with three evapotranspiration (ET) replacements (0.6 ET, 0.45 ET and 0.3 ET) by hand watering. In summer 2019, the tested entries showed a wide range of variability at three ETos levels. Overall, bermudagrass is the most drought resistant among three species. Two months and a half after initiating the deficit irrigation treatment, cultivars such as Tahoma 31, TifTuf, UCR 17-8, FB 1628, and Dog Tuff had higher turf quality at all three ETos levels. Data collection is ongoing until 2021."
