Soil heating studies with cool season turf-grass. III. Methods for the establishment of turf with seed and sod during winter



Agronomy Journal 63(5): 686-689



Five turfgrass species were seeded in plots maintained at 4.4, 10 and 15.5 degrees C, half covered with black polypropylene screens giving 55% shade. Germinating time was reduced by increasing soil temperature and the use of covers. Response differences between 10 and 15 degrees C were smaller than between 4 and 10 degrees C. Following germination, cover influenced grass development more than did soil temperature.
