Abstract/Contents:Discusses the potential impact of winter traffic on creeping bentgrass, explaining that "when pressure is applied to frost-covered turf, ice crystal formation damages the plant cell structure, and turf is unable to recover quickly because photosynthesis and respiration are reduced in winter." Reports that "time and type of traffic significantly affected creeping bentgrass winter performance" and that "rolling traffic was more detrimental than foot traffic." States that "traffic that occurred at 7 a.m. - whether rolling or foot traffic - was more harmful than traffic at 9 a.m." Suggests that "if winter injury occurs on a creeping bentgrass green in the easten part of the transition zone, full recovery should be expected once temperatures have moderated."
