Abstract

Urban soils may restrict turfgrass rooting depth with shallow soil layers in high sand content soils, which may influence water conservation. A greenhouse study sought to quantify water usage and determine the physiological response of turfgrasses at four irrigation levels. 'ATF-1434' tall fescue (...

Abstract

Drought stress inhibits shoot growth of cool-season turfgrass species, and elevated CO2 concentration may mitigate the adverse effects of drought through alteration of hormone production. The objective of this study was to determine whether elevated CO2-enhanced drought tolerance in creeping...

Abstract

Drought and salt are two major stresses of turfgrass. Both damage the plant root system by disrupting osmotic balance at the root-soil interface. The objectives of our hydroponic experiments were to understand root physiological and biochemical responses in two turfgrass species (seashore paspalum...

Abstract

St. Augustinegrass [Stenotaphrum secundatum (Walt.) Kuntze] is a popular shade-tolerant turfgrass but has a higher water use rate compared with other warm-season turfgrasses. In an effort to improve drought resistance in St. Augustinegrass, the Texas A&M turfgrass breeding program has used embryo...

Abstract

A 2-yr study was conducted to investigate the effect of subsurface drip irrigation (SDI), the soil surfactant Revolution (modified methyl-capped block copolymer), and the plant growth regulator PrimoMaxx (a.i. trinexapac-ethyl [TE]), on rooting, stolons, and rhizomes, percentage green turf...

Abstract

Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne), one of the most widely used forage and cool-season turfgrass worldwide, has a breeding history of more than 100 years. However, the current draft genome annotation and transcriptome characterization are incomplete mainly because of the enormous difficulty in...

Abstract

Wetting agents have been widely used in the turf industry for ameliorating hydrophobic soil conditions and improving water use efficiency. However, limited information is available regarding potential benefits of wetting agents on fine textured soil lawns where wettable soils are commonly found,...

Abstract

Seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum) is an important warm-season turfgrass distributed in tropical and coastal areas. It has excellent resistance to abiotic stresses, such as salinity, drought, and low temperature. However, the research on genetic diversity of local P. vaginatum collections from...

Abstract

Grasslands have a natural capacity to decrease air pollution and a positive impact on human life. However, their maintenance requires adequate irrigation, which is difficult to apply in many regions where drought and high temperatures are frequent. Therefore, the selection of grass species more...

Abstract

Increased urban populations and drought conditions strain municipal water supplies, often resulting in activation of water conservation plans. Supplemental irrigation can be eliminated in extreme situations, which diminishes functional and visual benefits of turfgrass landscapes. The objective of...
