USGA Summary Points:Effects of three soil moisture sensor treatments were found to apply lesser amount of water on bermudagrass plots than controlled plots, and therefore, effectively reducing the number of irrigation cycles. Controlled plots irrigation 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 duration of the study (April - October) is based on growing season of bermudagrass in southern California, which concluded that soil moisture sensors are effective in conserving water than control while maintaining acceptable turfgrass quality.
