Abstract/Contents:"This study was designed to explain more precisely why, in a previous study, creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.) and perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) turfs had different runoff rates despite being grown on soils of similar texture and slope and to assess the influence that vertical mowing and earthworms had on runoff. On 20 dates, sloped plots of bentgrass and ryegrass, maintained similar to a golf fairway, were irrigated at 139.5 mm h₋₁ to force runoff. Before runoff events, irrigation was used to equilibrate soil moisture levels for all plots. Mean runoff up to steady-state runoff rates was significantly less for bentgrass (18% of applied water) than ryegrass (27%). Vertical mowing and earthworms did not significantly affect runoff. It was concluded that the selection of a higher-density, thatch-forming turfgrass (creeping bentgrass) rather than a lower-density turfgrass that forms little thatch (perennial ryegrass) would lead to a reduction in runoff."
