Abstract/Contents:Discusses winter injury, explaining five various types of winter injury, including desiccation, crown hydration, anoxia, direct low-temperature kill, and crown dehydration. Focuses on winter cover, including permeable noninsulating cover; permeable insulating cover; and impermeable covers, providing cost analysis on each of them. Discusses no-cover topdresisng programs that may help control winter injury, providing a cost analysis. States that "superintendents acknowledge that greens covers are not a panacea for winter injury problems. However, they understand that a properly designed winter protection program that addresses the particular needs of the area being protected gives them the best chance of success."
