Abstract/Contents:Duplicate experiments were conducted on St. Augustinegrass and Tifway bermudagrass growing on a well drained, modified, loamy sand root zone. Weighable lysimeter placed in holes such that the surface was flush to the turf sward, determined the amount of transpiration during a specific time interval. The turf was treated with variable rates of flurprimidol (EL-500), a growth inhibitor, in various combinations with and without mowing. Assessments were made at 15 day intervals through a 100 day period. Significant reductions in evaporation were recorded 14 weeks after application on a plot treated with fluprimidol. The flurprimidol treatment resulted in a 11-29% water savings compared to untreated plots. This amount varies with turfgrass species, application rate and the evaporative demand on a given day.
