Managing Turfgrass on a Water Allocation - Fact sheet 

Dr Louise Barton 2015

Approaches for effectively utilising water allocations for turfgrass was investigated at The University of Western Australia (UWA) Turf Research Facility in Perth, Western Australia.

The aims of our four-year field-based project were to:
- Investigate if turfgrass can be maintained with a water allocation (7500 kL/ha per year), and the implications of further lowering the allocation on turfgrass quality;
- Evaluate how an annual water allocation is best distributed during the year; and
- Assess if using a soil wetting agent improved the effectiveness of a water allocation.
