How to manage turfgrass while conserving water
Date:8/3/2011

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Water, an increasingly critical resource in the world, factors prominently in turfgrass research. Since the first edition of "Turfgrass Water Conservation," a widely used reference, was released in 1985, the science of turfgrass water use and water conservation has made significant gains.

Now two turfgrass experts have prepared the second edition of the reference book to bring readers' attention to the many advances in the science and technologies of turfgrass water use.

Included for the first time in "Turfgrass Water Conservation" (University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources, 2011) are the environmental impact of water use on turf; policy issues; expanded relationships with the landscape; and water use efficiency in soils modified for high quality or high traffic turf.

Other topics the book covers are water conservation in the landscape; developing turfgrasses for drought, salinity, and temperature stress tolerance; water use physiology; irrigation water quality, management, and policy issues; salinity management; and water management technologies.

"The first book had a significant impact upon turfgrass water research and water use," said Stephen T. Cockerham, the superintendent of agricultural operations at the University of California, Riverside, who co-edited the second edition with Bernd Leinauer, a turfgrass specialist at New Mexico State University. "But the science has progressed significantly since the first edition, warranting a new edition."

According to Cockerham, a particularly valuable feature of the second edition is the "Practicum" chapter consisting of practical information, gleaned from each technical chapter. The practicum is geared especially for practitioners, administrators in planning and operations, politicians, public agencies, educators and students.
