USGA Summary Points:Soil moisture sensors (from Toro, Rain Bird and Tucor) were installed in the Bermudagrass plots fall 2017 and Spring 2018 to measure the moisture content in the root zone and effectively reduce the number of irrigation cycles. Irrigation amount is based on ETcrop, previous 2-d CIMIS ETo (adjusted for precipitation), monthly warm-season turfgrass Kc, full run time multiplier (RTM) based on individual plot irrigation system distribution uniformity, low quarter (DULQ), and individual plot precipitation rate. The first year study concluded that soil moisture sensors are effective in conserving water than control while maintaining acceptable turfgrass quality.
