Abstract/Contents:"Soil health or soil quality is the capacity of a soil to function within ecosystem boundaries to sustain biological productivity, maintain environmental quality, and promote plant and animal health (Doran & Parkin1, 1994). To fulfill these requirements, healthy soils provide a stability and balance between the physical, chemical, and biological attributes of the soil. Most of the studies on soil health assessment and management have focused on crop production systems, while relatively few studies have integrated soil health assessment in turfgrass systems. However, due to environmental concerns, chemicals applied to turfgrass systems are receiving increased scrutiny, and the impacts of these chemical need to be related to soil health. Understanding soil health in these turfgrass root zones will enable turf managers to implement more sustainable maintenance practices. Therefore, the specific objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of natural and market available chemical surfactants on the physical, chemical and biological soil health indicators in turfgrass under both sufficient and deficit irrigation in an arid environment, relating the results to turfgrass quality and vigor."
