New fact sheet - Experiences from impermeable winter covers

This new fact sheet is based on published reports and experiences with impermeable covers during the last decade. Properly installed impermeable covers can be recommended as an efficient way to prevent damage from ice and melting water, desiccation and other types of abiotic winter stresses on putting greens. Two years positive results from four Norwegian golf courses have been confirmed by Swedish greenkeepers who have tried impermeable covers for many years and who estimate better winter survival in four out of five years.
