Using irrigation to build soil structure, by using irrigation,, to create an environment/habitat allowing structure building microbes to thrive...
Using irrigation to grow healthy turf,,, with beneficial mictobes,,, while inhibiting fungal pathogens from taking over the lawn...

People have supposedly done proper irrigation,,, yet are unable to create a suitable habitat for the microbes that are considered most benefical for nutrient cycling, aeration structures, etc...

Why is that??? Why are the beneficial microbes, going to drop dead, and why are they not growing actively in the turf already???
Perhaps you are correct , that no one is interested in the various irrigation strategies for the various soils and growing conditions... soil structure is definately not important to root development and turf health... sorry to have wasted everyones' time...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
