Abstract/Contents:"Southern California Inland Valleys have hot, dry summers that make it difficult to manage most cool season turfgrasses such as perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne). However, many managers and developers of sports turf sites will use perennial ryegrass for sports turf surfaces in the inland valleys of California and even throughout the desert southwest. Further, many of these sites have limiting sunlight for the turfgrass due to stadium configuration. There is little information on growth characteristics of perennial ryegrass in high temperature and limiting light. Woven poly shade cloth imposed three levels of partial shade on perennial ryegrass var. 'Manhattan II' at Riverside, CA. Shade had been imposed continuosly for about 24 months and then removed for a recovery period. Clipping yields and plant mass were monitored to measure growth response while shade (as low as 33%) produced significantly lower clipping yields in the summer and lower root and total plant mass throughout the year than non-limiting sunlight. Additionally, these differences prevailed for months after returning to non-limiting sunlight."
