Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine spatial and temporal salinity accumulation patterns in soil profiles on golf course fairways with effluent water irrigation." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "the plots with higher soil salinity were at the edges of the fairways and likely experienced increased compaction from golf cart traffic. [They] also had greater percentages of clay content."

USGA Summary Points:Salinity and sodicity are among the concerns associated with effluent water irrigation. Fairways and putting greens irrigated with effluent water exhibited increased extractable sodium and phosphorus. Significant linear correlation was observed between 5TE salinity sensor-measured soil salinity, Turf Guard measured soil salinity vs. saturated paste extracted soil salinity. Accumulation of salts appears to relate to precipitation patterns, soil compaction level, soil texture, and drainage.
