Evapotranspiration rates were measured for several turf grasses in Arizona, California, Colorado, and Wyoming, and these data were used to calibrate the Blaney-Criddle method for estimating evapotranspiration rates. Warm-season grasses used less water than did cool-season grasses when grown in warm climates. However, Kentucky bluegrass did exhibit heat stress that reduced its evapotranspiration rates below what would be expected when soil temperatures exceed 25 degree C. The data were collected in urban areas and should be representative of city-wide water requirements for turfed areas.
