The essential resource for managing turfgrasses in the Transition Zone

In the Transition Zone, where temperature and precipitation vary greatly from season to season, maintaining healthy, high-quality turfgrass requires year-round focus. Turfgrass managers must practice intensive maintenance of cool-season grasses or use warm-season grasses, which become dormant in the cool days of fall and winter.

Turf Management in the Transition Zone covers all the fundamental principles of maintaining turfgrass in this complex growing area. It helps turfgrass managers in transition areas develop a deeper understanding of:

  • The growth cycles of cool- and warm-season grasses
  • Turfgrass physiology, nutrition, and soil science
  • Cultural practices, including mowing and irrigation
  • Management of climate-specific diseases and insects

Complete with more than 100 illustrations and tables,Turf Management in the Transition Zone offers expert advice for everyday turf-maintenance issues faced by golf course superintendents, sports turf managers, greenkeepers, lawn care specialists, and golf course architects and builders.
