Abstract/Contents:"Increasing growth population in metropolitan areas sets availability to the amount of water that can be allocated for turfgrass areas, even in subtropical areas. Deficit irrigation is a common practice to limit the amount of potable water used for turfgrass irrigation. A three-year (2020, 2021, 2022) study was conducted at the University of Florida Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center to investigate the response of three warm-season grasses [bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.), buffalograss (Buchloe dactyloides), and zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.)] irrigated at either 0.6, 0.45 and 0.3 reference evapotranspiration (ETo). Turfgrass was deficit-irrigated during South Florida dry season (from December until May or June) when ETo rates exceeded precipitation, and subsequently recovered during the rainy reason. Plots were evaluated biweekly for turfgrass quality and cover using Digital Image Analysis. Buffalograss did not establish, and it may not be considered a suitable option for turfgrass areas South Florida. Generally, bermudagrass cultivars responded to deficit irrigation better than zoysiagrass that lost color, quality and functionality faster than bermudagrass when deficit irrigated. Among bermudagrass cultivars 'TifTuf' was the one that could endure stress the longest, maintaining quality longer. Results suggest that selecting the appropriate cultivar for the area could help turf practitioners maintaining turfgrass functionality with less water."
