MGCSA Member-Driven Research profile: Preservation of deacclimated annual bluegrass

March 30, 2018

The University of Minnesota Turfgrass Science Team has partnered with the Minnesota Golf Course Superintendents Association (MGCSA) to perform on-site research determined by the members themselves. As part of this project, we conducted a study at the Medina Country Club and the Les Bolstad Golf Course in 2017. We examined the following research question: Will installing covers during a February warm-up reduce the risk of injury to annual bluegrass due to deacclimation?
