Abstract/Contents:"Research trials in 1997, 1998, and 1999 examined the efficacy of various liquid and granular wetting agent formulations at alleviating turf problems associated with hydrophobicity and localized dry spot. Trials were performed on a Penncross creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.) USGA green at the Guelph Turfgrass Institute, Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Evaluation techniques included water droplet penetration time tests on cores, visual assessment of turf characteristics, infiltration rate determination with split ring infiltrometers, and in situ measurement of soil moisture using the Thetaprobe frequency domain relectometer. Considerable variation was observed in measurable effects among different treatments and trials. In some cases the stress (hydrophobicity and water stress) may not have been strong enough to observe wetting agent effects. The USGA green suffered a significant dry-down event in spring of 1999, which provided ideal conditions for examining localized dry spot and wetting agent efficacy. Volumetric water content measurements allowed detailed mapping of soil moisture fluctuations across the treated plots."
