Abstract/Contents:"Sound irrigation management is necessary due to the increased competition for water and the desire for high-quality turfgrass sod. There is limited research-based information regarding the reliability of soil moisture sensor-based irrigation scheduling in turfgrass sod production. The objective of the following study was to establish soil moisture thresholds for granular matrix sensors during establishment from sprigs and to quantify minimum water requirements for establishment of selected hybrid Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon x C. transvaalensis). A field study was conducted at two locations: Turfgrass Research Center, Stillwater, OK and Cimarron valley Research Station, Perkins, OK. The study used three hybrid bermudagrass cultivars (Cynodon dactylon x C. transvaalensis) 'OKC 1131' (Tahoma 31), 'OKC 1119' (Latitude 36TM), 'OKC 1876'. The experiment was arranged as a randomized complete block with a split-split plot treatment structure having three irrigation treatments (25%, 50%, 75 % thresholds) x two sprigging rates (1.354 L/m2 & 0.677 L/m2). Ground base measurements include soil volumetric water content (VMC), total water applied measured using totalizing water meters, green coverage (GC) using digital image analysis, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) & normalized difference red edge (NDRE) using a handheld sensor, and Shear strength. At the end of the study, plots were harvested and assessed for Sod handling quality (SHQ) and Sod tensile strength (STS). The findings indicate that soil moisture sensor thresholds significant results in water savings without adversely affecting turfgrass quality. The research provides guidance for use of soil moisture sensors in sod production and baseline estimates for water requirements of bermudagrass establishment from sprigs."
