Abstract/Contents:"Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) (KBG) is the most commonly grown cool-season C3 grass. As average global temperatures rise, these grasses that prefer moderate temperatures (22-26 oC) struggle to tolerate higher temperatures. This also results in an increase in irrigation water, which is an increasingly scarce resource in arid zones and in areas with demand for water due to high populations. Triploid interspecific Bermudagrass hybrids (Cynodon dactylon [L.] Pers. x Cynodon transvaalensis Burtt Davy) (HBG) are warm-season C4 grasses that may be increasingly suited for northern ecosystems traditionally classified as transitional or cool-season climates. Hybrid Bermudagrass has been successfully grown for 16 years in Provo, UT, USA; as well as recently being grown in other traditionally cool-season zones. And it is being considered for more widespread use in other cool season regions. The objective of this study is to evaluate Latitude 36 and Tahoma 31 hybrid Bermudagrasses compared to a blend of KBG cultivars for drought tolerance. The deficit irrigated KBG consistently scored lower for NDVI and visual turf quality than all other treatments, including moderate and high KBG. This same trend was seen in the field study for percent cover. The canopy temperatures of deficit irrigated KBG were also higher than all other treatments on most dates. The shoot mass, thatch mass, and total biomass of KBG were significantly less than either HBG cultivar. The data suggest that irrigation needs will be less for HBG than KBG and that HBG could provide a water-saving turfgrass alternative to KBG in semi-arid, cool-season regions with increasing water scarcity."
