Abstract/Contents:"Winter damage to putting greens results in increased direct costs related to turf recovery and can also reduce revenue due through decreased spring play. In particular, ice damage to annual bluegrass (Poa annua) golf course putting greens is a significant problem throughout the northern U.S., Canada, and other temperate areas with severe winter conditions. Researchers have struggled to discover effective approaches to reducing winter stress damage because variability in winter conditions, both at a given site, and across time, limits the broad application of research results and hinders data collection. Our approach to this problem is to monitor winter stress effects on hundreds of golf greens throughout cold climates using a combination of novel environmental sensing nodes, weather data, and golf course superintendent observations. This approach should result in finding many instances of winter damage, allowing us to determine combinations of environments that put turfgrasses most at risk. Outcomes of this work can inform the work of turfgrass management specialists, plant breeders, plant physiologists, and plant pathologists as we seek solutions to winter stress injury of turfgrasses."
