. Decline in turf quality caused by drought stress is a major concern in turfgrass culture. Therefore, developing management practices for improving drought resistance of turfgrasses has become imperative in arid and semiarid regions, especially during

Drought stress is one of the most important abiotic stresses limiting plant growth in many arid areas. Drought tolerance and recuperative ability differ inter- and intraspecifically for turfgrass species ( Carrow, 1996 ; Du et al., 2008
