Abstract/Contents:"Managing turfgrass in arid and semi-arid areas in southern U.S. has been a great challenge due to prolonged drought. Turfgrass managers have been seeking products that control pests and promote drought-resistance. CivitasTM Turf Defense is a new Petroleum-derived spray oil (PDSOs) mixed with pigment. Like other traditional PDSOs products, it was reported with positive effects on turfgrass pest control and management. However, limited study has been done on evaluating its effect on water conservation of turfgrass. The objective of this study was to assess Civitas effects on deficit-irrigated bermudagrass. A 2-years study was conducted at Riverside, CA, to evaluate the effect of Civitas on bermudagrass irrigated at 55% and 65% reference evapotranspiration (ET0). The product treatment including spray Civitas at 27 L ha-1 every two weeks (2019 and 2020), 14.3 L ha-1 every two weeks (2019 and 2020), and 27 L ha-1 every three weeks (2019 only), compared to the untreated control. Results showed that at any rate, Civitas improved bermudagrass quality. In 2019, the three-week application interval had minimal positive effects than the two-week application interval at any rate. Civitas applied at 27 L ha-1 every 2 weeks had better quality compared to the 14.3 L/ha in first year compared to second year. Bermudagrass could hold similar quality between 55% and 65% ET0 for 2 months, thereafter, overall quality and volumetric water content dropped in 55% ET0 compared to the 65% ET0."
