Abstract/Contents:Addresses the question, "Is spring a good time for seeding turfgrasses in the northern contiguous United States?" States that "optimum temperatures for seed germination of most cool-season turfgrasses are at soil temperatures in the order of 86°F (30°C) during the daytime and 68°F (20°C) at night" Also reports that "the preferred time for seeding cool-season turfgrasses is late summer-early autumn, with spring being a distant second choice but better than the midsummer heat and drought stress season."
Geographic Terms:Northern United States
