Abstract/Contents:"Turfgrass water use and irrigation are important factors to consider in urban water conservation programs. Knowledge of water use as well as scheduling of irrigation are factors which need to be combined for effective water management. A program is underway by the University of Arizona to empirically determine water use rates for cool and warm season turf grasses, and to compare these water use rates with an atmospheric (reference) demand for water vapor. Together, crop coefficients (Kc Values) are formulated (Actual turf ET/Ref ET) which can then be used by AZMET users for irrigation purposes. This type of public program is being developed to promote water conservation among turfgrowers and clientele in Arizona. This paper deals with the protocol for developing and evaluating turfgrass Kc values."
