Abstract/Contents:"Increasing pressure on water resources, especially in the western United States, are pushing government regulators to consider how to reduce consumption. Although commercial agriculture consumes a considerable portion of the available water, other uses like turfgrass irrigation are not insignificant. Over-irrigation in turfgrass is not a simple problem. The benefits of turfgrass over a synthetic surface include lowering playing temperature, player safety, surface performance, and visual experience. Traditionally, fields have been managed to optimize the benefits with little or no concern toward water use and its potential implications on nutrient availability, etc. Our work aims to understand the impact of traditional (calendar and hand-watering) based irrigation schemes compared to an evapotranspiration-controlled approach on water and nutrient availability. As importantly, we conduct this research on key assets: LaVell Edwards Field and Haws Practice Field on the BYU campus. Results indicate the traditional approach considerably over irrigates turfgrass leading to poor outcomes like lower soil electrical conductivities, a surrogate of nutrient availability. Further, we present a unique look into an evapotranspiration-controlled systems that also over-irrigates despite consistent soil water. Data suggest that adding soil moisture to an ET-based system can provide optimal root zone moisture without over-irrigation."
