USGA Summary Points:Thirty-five total entries in the Cool-Season Water Use and Drought Resistance trial were planted in fall 2016/spring 2017. Five locations measure water used over a 100-day period under a rain exclusion shelter, and five locations induce drought by restricting ETo replacement. Drought treatments were initiated at six of the ten locations in 2017, and at all ten locations in 2018, with differences in drought response noted among entries. In some instances, two-fold differences in water used were recorded among entries. The 40% ETo replacement level resulted in >95% grass kill at the Riverside, CA location in 2017, while the 40% ETo replacement level at Las Cruces, NM resulted in acceptable performance by some entries. Statistical differences among entries were smaller than expected, and small changes in trial protocol and statistical analysis were instituted as a result. A warm-season water use/drought trial with seventeen entries was planted at ten locations in summer 2018.
