Turf Irrigation and Water Conservation Series

The following in-depth fact articles on turf irrigation and water conservation are the result of several years of research at the University of Massachusetts.  The overall goal of this research is to reduce the amount of water applied for turf irrigation to the lowest possible level required to sustain the desired level of turf quality and function.  The practices outlined are appropriate for a range of irrigated turf environments, from lawns, to sports fields, to golf courses.
