Without surface watering, tall fescue yielded approximately the same with water table depths of 9 and 17 inches. With 1 inch of surface water per week, the maximum yield was obtained with a 16-inch water table depth. The reduction in yield with the 8-inch water table depth was attributed to leaching nitrogen from the root zone. Aeration measurements in the root zone offer a means of extrapolating desired water table depths to other soil types.
