Why would I want to look at some university study? Please enlighten me? Do I need a study to see when the sun is out? It is real funny when people think they are too smart... they completely ignore simple logic but derive the most complicated, twisted, convoluted road that reaches no where. Example? Please refer to History!
I don't care what soil it is, 1inch of water will leech tremendous mineral from the top soil where the grass roots are. But this is if it is done all at once. If one were to cycle through intervals, there should not be a problem but unnecessary. Again, it is nothing but water wasted.
mdlwn, before you pedicure other's post
, please go back and read all posts as I was replying to someone's post. Perhaps you need a university guidance for this also?
Keep it Simple Stupid.
P.S. And 'deep watering' usually means just that, deep watering.
