Abstract/Contents:"Annual bluegrass (Poa annua L.) encroachment may increase when turfgrass is maintained with excessive irrigation; however, with proper deficit irrigation, annual bluegrass germination may be suppressed while desirable turfgrass is sustained. Previous research conducted on perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) determined that irrigation once per week reduced annual bluegrass populations but was also detrimental to perennial ryegrass quality compared to irrigation applied several times per week. Considering these results infrequent irrigation may be a potential weed management tool for turfgrass species with greater drought tolerance. Therefore, the goal of this project was to determine the optimal irrigation regime for suppressing annual and perennial weeds in tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb) stands during the summer months. Factors in this experiment included two irrigation frequencies (once or 4 times a week) and two reference evapotranspiration (ETref) replacement rates (45% and 80%) compared to a control treatment (no irrigation). The control treatment was able to sustain acceptable turfgrass quality for most of the year, with the exception being late August and September in 2021 and 2022. The control treatment also produced substantial reductions in weed populations (annual bluegrass, spotted spurge, wood sorrel and perennial broadleaf weeds). Results also found that tall fescue will remain visually acceptable when soil volumetric water content is maintained around 15% or greater in a silty clay loam. The 80% ET replacement rates resulted in the greatest turf quality, followed closely by the 45% ET replacement treatment."
