Abstract/Contents:"Concern has been expressed within the landscaping industry as to the viability of bermudagrass turf following periods of transport and storage. As a measure of such stress, bermudagrass turf was stored on pallets for three weeks during summer in full sun, but proteted from rain by a retractable rainout shelter. During this time the temperature of the turf on the pallet was monitored, reaching 35°C, 12°C above air temperature. Following storage, the turf was frequently irrigated once it had been laid in a landscape fashion on sandy soil. After four weeks, a 75% recovery of the bermudagrass was observed."
