Abstract/Contents:The primary objective of this research was to compare ET [evapotranspiration] rates among 24 bermudagrass, 10 St. Augustinegrass, and 11 zoysiagrass genotypes under well-watered, field conditions. A secondary objective was to correlate the ET rate to potential, rapidly-assessed plant predictors of the ET rate. ET rates were significantly different among the 24 bermudagrasses, but not among the 10 St. Augustinegrasses nor 11 zoysiagrasses. Significant ET rate differences among the St. Augustinegrasses and zoysiagrasses may exist at soil moisture levels lower than well watered conditions. Though water usage has been positively correlated with the amount of shoot growth, our data suggest that measurement of leaf extension rates, though easily taken, was not a reliable predictor of total leaf area as it influences the ET rate of certain warm-season turfgrass species.
