This seminar is for superintendents who want to learn to reduce winter injury and encourage quick recovery for warm-season turfgrasses growing within the transition zone and areas further north.  The goal of this course is to inform attendees about low temperature stress and proper management strategies they can use to enhance warm-season turfgrass acclimation to winter conditions. 

Participants will discuss and learn about topics including:

  • Impacts of cultural practices on the onset of turfgrass dormancy
  • Symptomology of freezing injury
  • Cultural practices and techniques to reduce winter injury
  • Recovery and spring-green up techniques following stressful winter conditions
