Abstract/Contents:"Clinoptilolite zeolite (CZ) has been shown to have a positive effect on turfgrass germination, establishment, growth, quality, nutrient status and yield, but data is lacking on clinoptilolite effect on water consumption in turfgrass culture. In this study, the lysimeter was used for growing creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds cv. Penncross) in the greenhouse to determine the shoot growth rate (SGR), and evapotranspiration rate(ET). Three N levels ( 98, 196, and 293 kg NH₄⁺ -N ha⁻¹), as ammonium sulfate, were included as treatments. Root zone media evaluated included sand amended with 10% (w/w) clinoptilolite zeolite (CZ) and unamended sand. Shoot growth and ET were evaluated under both a well-watered and a water-witholding period. During the irrigated period, the lysimeters with CZ-sand has a SGR 26% higher than the unamended lysimeters. In general, the water-witholding period, SGR declined but was 60% higher for creeping bentgrass grown CZ-sand than unamended sand. Increasing the N rate increased SGR under well-watered conditions but the SGR increase was non-linear during the water-witholding period. ET was unaffected by CZ amendement of sand and N application rate under well-water conditions. During the water-witholding period, ET was 6% higher for creeping bentgrass grown on sand amended with CZ, as reflected in a greater plant available moisture pool. Sand based putting green turf could benefit from sand amended with CZ by having a greater SGR, thus a greater recuperative potential, without a substantial increase in the ET rate."
