Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of turf blankets on sports turf, explaining that "the basic concept behind [the] utilization of turf blankets is to increase average soil temperatures beneath the blanket at an accelerated rate as compared to uncovered turf areas." Describes the two main heat cycles, the diurnal and annual cycles, detailing their influence of soil temperatures. Mentions "a few warnings or considerations when utilizing turf blankets," and concludes that "when used in conjunction with an effective turf management program, turf blankets can enhance benefits realized from that program."
