USGA Summary Points:During establishment year (2014) and initial two growing seasons (2015/2016), the shallower (0, 5 and 10 cm) capping depths supported more rapid establishment, improved turf quality, higher percent green cover, and higher surface moisture relative to the 20 cm capping depths. Irrigation of 1x weekly and 2x weekly (each at 60% x ETo) provided similar levels of turf quality and cover during the 2015/2016 seasons. A 60-day dry-down was imposed during the 2017 summer in order to evaluate sand-cap x subsoil treatment effects on drought resistance, recovery, and/or survival. By the end of the dry-down, all sand-cap x subsoil treatments had declined from ~80-85% to ~20-25% green cover levels, but rapidly rebounded back to near-full cover levels (~80%+) following resumption of irrigation in early August.
