Effect of Depth of Water Table on Yield of Tall Fescue1

  1. R. E. Williamson and
  2. C. R. Willey2



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.
