Abstract/Contents:"A study was initiated at Lubbock, Texas, during 1982 to compare the water requirements of four different turfgrass varieties in the West Texas environment. Plots were located under a portable rainout shelter so that the water applied could be controlled. To determine the amount of water required to maintain an aesthetically pleasing visual appearance, the irrigation water applied and soil water extracted were measured. The data indicated that during establishment zoysiagrass and tall fescue required the more frequent irrigation and more water than bermudagrass and buffalograss. It should be emphasized that 1982 was a year of establishment and the data obtained may not be related to what might be expected after the grasses are established."
