Abstract/Contents:Discusses the causes of heat stress in cool-season grasses and provides the chronological sequence of heat stress symptoms. Also discusses the difference in terminology between heat resistance, avoidance and tolerance. Steps to manage and minimize heat stress include: establish a high-sand root zone, use high amounts of potassium, use low to moderate amounts of nitrogen, minimize thatch, raise cutting heights, and switch to a walking greensmower. Also discusses the use of syringing for cooling the turf canopy and increasing water in plant tissue. Describes ways to enhance air movement across the turf such as cutting openings in shrubbery and using fans.
