Abstract/Contents:A primary objective of this project is the development of new turfgrasses which will significantly reduce the amount of water required to maintain quality turf. Gradient irrigation was imposed mid-July 1989 to create a moisture stress gradient and to determine the amount of irrigation required to prevent drought stress and to maintain green actively growing turf. Canopy temperature was lower for Prairie and DALBD8202 than for Texoka. This indicates that transpirational cooling was less for Texoka, and therefore that Texoka was under greater drought stress. In addition, net radiation readings were higher for Prairie and DALBD8208 than for Texoka under low and moderate irrigation, indicating a higher rate of net photosynthesis for these two grasses under water deficit.
