I am continually amazed by the impact that light has on turfgrass growth and development. We know that the quantity (intensity) of light impacts photosynthesis as well as alters overall growth and development, and we know that the quality or composition of light also alters gene expression, growth, and developmental responses in all plants.

As turfgrass managers we have a responsibility to observe the growth of the many varieties, cultivars, and species of turfgrass from seed to maturity. Pretty obvious, right? Observing growth is more than just looking at the turf with our own eyes from day to day. I have mentioned in a previous blog post about the importance of before and after photos and while they can be a great resource (Figure 1), there are more ways to see the progress of growth.
