Abstract/Contents:"Relationships between apparent electrical conductivity (ECa) and soil properties have long been used in precision agriculture to manage salt affected soils. However, these relationships have not been widely used in precision turf management, which seeks to optimize water and nutrient input on golf course fairways and putting greens. To date, research conducted in turfgrass systems has been done solely under native soil fairways and has not been considered in sand-capped fairways. Therefore, the objective of this study was to use electromagnetic induction (EMI) to evaluate the spatial correlations between ECa and soil volumetric water content, penetration resistance, texture, organic carbon, and nitrogen content in two fairways sand-capped to a 20.3 cm depth. ECa and soil properties were determined for two fairways at two golf courses located at The Club at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, TX. Georeferenced soil ECa data were measured at the 50 cm depth. Georeferenced soil volumetric water content and penetration resistance were measured to the 10.2 cm depth. Soil cores were used to measure soil organic carbon, soil texture, and nitrogen content. There was a significant, positive correlation between ECa and volumetric water content for three out of four fairways. Penetration resistance was negatively correlated to ECa, while organic matter depth was positively correlated to ECa, but the correlation coefficients were statistically significant for only one fairway. Our results demonstrate that ECa and soil property information show potential for applications in precision turf management. However, due to the inconsistent correlations found in fairways both within and between golf courses, further research is needed."
