Water-Atmosphere-Turfgrass-Edaphic/Soil-Relations (W.A.T.E.R.) for Efficient Water Management
As water issues become increasingly important, many superintendents are developing
and implementing water conservation plans. Efficient Water Management identifies
atmospheric and edaphic factors influencing water management and the importance
of water conservation. You'll learn to develop a basic irrigation guidance program
and create an overall water management program, which focuses on water conservation
through improved irrigation application.
This course contains five chapters, each featuring a chapter outline, learning objectives,
in-depth reading material, interactive reviews, and outstanding photos and illustrations.
Each chapter is broken down into a number of sections, so there is no need to complete
the entire course, or even one chapter, in a sitting.
The chapters for the course are as follows:
Chapter 1: An Overview of Water
Chapter 2: Atmospheric Factors Influencing Water Management
Chapter 3: Turfgrass Characteristics and Water Management
Chapter 4: Edaphic Factors Influencing Water Management
Chapter 5: The System: Soil - Plant - Atmosphere - Continuum
Golf course superintendents, assistants, technicians, agronomy and horticulture
students, grounds managers, turf industry professional or anyone who desires a better
