Extreme winter conditions in recent years have resulted in significant turf losses across northern climatic regions. Winter injury can occur as a result of several forms of abiotic stressors, such as direct low temperature kill, ice, and desiccation, or biotic stressors such as snow molds. Understanding the different causes for winter injury, including the environmental factors and management practices that may predispose turf to winterkill, is essential to minimizing damage to your turf. Michelle DaCosta, Ph.D., and John Inguagiato, Ph.D., focus on steps to maximize winter survival of cool-season turfgrasses in this 60-minute plant health webinar. Emphasis will be placed on preconditioning strategies and options for control of snow molds. Join us to help ensure your turf surfaces are ready for play come spring.
