Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study conducted "to identify physiological and biochemical traits that confer cross adaptation to both snow mold and freezing temperatures in annual bluegrass. This information will be used to assist the development of seed sources more broadly adapted to winter streses. This project will also contribute to the development of best management practices (BMP) to optimize winter survival while reducing pesticide use." Reports that "a total of 32 ecotypes were collected, by M. Vincent Brousseau Coalition for Responsible Golf, and transferred to AAFC [Agriculture and Agri-Foods Canada] research Center in Sainte-Foy [Canada]" and that "a preliminary assay was initiated in october [2005] in order to determine the optimal conditions (temperature, humidity, inoculum rate etc.) for pink snow mold development."
