Abstract/Contents:"Sod is a perishable commodity, and its quality deteriorates quickly after harvesting due to desiccation and heating within the sod stack or roll. The objective of this research was to determine the effects of storage time and harvest season of Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon x C. tranvaalensis 'OKC1131') and Zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica 'Meyer') sod on post-harvest transplant success. A field study was conducted as a split-split plot design for two seasons (late spring & early summer) at two locations; Turfgrass Research Center, Stillwater, OK & Cimarron Valley Research Station, Perkins, OK. Sod was harvested from Tulsa Grass & Sod farm and Riverview Sod Ranch and delivered as small rolls on a standard pallet. The internal temperature within sod rolls and slabs was measured continuously over five storage hours (0, 24, 48, 72 and 96 hours). Best quality sod slabs & rolls were selected for each cultivar on each storage time for transplanting into the field. The moisture content of the sod slabs & rolls and sod handling quality (SHQ) was evaluated at time of planting. Weekly measurements include visual ratings, green coverage (GC) using digital image analysis, normalized difference vegetative index (NDVI), normalized difference red edge (NDRE) using handheld sensor. Additionally, sod root count was measured 30 DAP. Results indicated that 1). Increased storage time had a significant impact on sod handling quality for zoysiagrass as compared to bermudagrass. 2) Green coverage decreased with an increase in storage time for bermudagrass. Project findings provide an understanding of ideal storage time for respective seasons and valuable information to sod growers on how to optimize the storage time and harvesting season to achieve higher transplant success."
