Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the specific cause of winter injury on greens (snow cover, ice formation, desicccation, crown hydration and rehydration and freeze/thaw cycles), and to determine whether superintendents should allow winter to take its natural course or whether they should actively mange to reduce winter injury by practices such as using protective covers and removing ice." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the study was carried out simultaneously on two separate greens during three years. One green was Penncross creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) growing on a native soil...the other was 85% annual bluegrass (Poa annua L.) and 15% creeping bentgrass growing on a USGA [United States Golf Association]-type green." Reports that researchers "believe that there was no direct low-temperature injury to annual bluegrass...In contrast, ice cover treatments on annual bluegrass did result in winterkill, but it was not caused by anoxia." Concludes that "the permeable covers [used in the] study nearly doubled the amount of surviving annual bluegrass compared to the open/dry control treatments...Covering greens with permeable covers is an important strategy when managing annual bluegrass greens."
