SL389: Using Reclaimed Water to Irrigate Turfgrass – Lessons Learned from Research with Nitrogen

Figure 5. Dry matter accumulation of ‘Floratam’ St. Augustinegrass turfgrass (averaged over two water sources). Dry matter increased as irrigation level increased from 1 to 2 cm per week, and then it leveled off. The final dry matter of verdure, thatch, and root was not affected by irrigation level.
