Abstract/Contents:"Large scale use of soil wetting agents on native soil fairways is not as common as applications on sand-based putting greens. As water shortages and droughts increase there is an increased need to maintain fairway height putting greens with reduced water applications. Soil wetting agents could be used to maintain the health of the turfgrass with reduced water applications and reduce the spatial variability of water in the soil. The study was performed on a creeping bentgrass native soil fairway at the Jim Ager Memorial Junior Golf Course in Lincoln, NE from May to September 2023. The soil wetting agent Rely III was applied at three rates 3.2, 9.5, and 19 L ha-1 in 3 m strips across the fairway with three replications. Volumetric water content was measured using a Spectrum TDR 350 on two-meter intervals across each of the plots. The variability of the volumetric water content was quantified using R and QGIS to compare between treatments. Initial results found that the 19 L ha-2 rate of Rely III reduced the volumetric water content coefficient of variation after each application in June, July and August. Future research will quantify the longevity of the soil wetting agent on native soil fairways."
