Title: Too Hot to Water
Author: Lyons, Eric M.
Department: Department of Plant Agriculture
Abstract: One of the best parts about working on a golf course versus working at many other urban outdoor jobs is that the grass cools itself via transpiration making golf courses much cooler than areas surrounded by pavement. The primary function of water taken up by the plant is cooling. This allows the plant to continue physiological functions such as photosynthesis and contributes to growth and recovery. The article discusses correct irrigation practices for summer and best practices to prevent heat scald.
