Compares the benefits of warm season greens during warmer temperatures throughout the summer with cold season greens. Describes ways to correctly indicate turf canopy temperatures and discusses the relationship between soil temperatures and canopy temperatures. Recommends several different pieces of equipment used to monitor canopy temperatures and describes ways to implement a temperature monitoring program.
