Winter injuries are common in the Nordics, and golf course superintendents have gained a lot of experience on how to prepare and treat their greens to keep them alive through extreme winter conditions.
STERF has funded several research projects highly relevant to turfgrass winter stress management. This project sought to integrate practical experiences, research results and general science into synthesised texts accessible to professional turf managers.
Members of NIBIO’s turfgrass research group wrote the texts and provided illustrations. Turfgrass agronomists and golf course managers evaluated some of the texts during the process. Barb Manifold read the fact-sheet manuscripts on behalf of the Canadian Turfgrass Research Foundation.
The fact sheets can be found in the Library, under Fact sheets, Winter survival
To create a web-based library on topics related to winter stress management of turf grass with emphasis on golf greens.
