Abstract/Contents:"Winter injury on turf grass is a major problem on golf courses in Scandinavia. When turf grass injury occurs, playing conditions on e.g. putting greens might not be acceptable until later in June. Hardening and early spring growth is highly dependent on maintenance. Therefore it is important to identify maintenance strategies that help the turf grass to fully harden before winter, resulting in high stress tolerance, less winter damage and an early green up in spring. In this trial, carbohydrate content (fructan and total analysed water soluble carbohydrates) was used as an indicator for the level of stress tolerance throughout the playing season and especially before winter (Harrison et al., 1997; Livingston et al., 2003). The overall objective of this project was to develop and improve maintenance strategies to optimise overwintering and early spring growth for two common green turfs. The examined turf grasses were: 1. a pure sward of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) and 2. a mixture of two fescues (Festuca rubra ssp. commutata and Festuca rubra ssp. litoralis) First, two different fertilization regimes were tested as a maintenance strategy: the first based on the commonly practised fertilization strategy on golf courses in the region (applied every two weeks), the second based on a growth curve of the grasses given by climatic conditions to keep an ideal constant N concentration (applied every week), further referred to as 'Traditional' (TR; Fig.1) and 'Demand driven' (DD; Fig.1). As a second and third maintenance strategy, the use of chemical disease control in autumn and a spring protective cover were also tested, though not discussed in this paper."
