Abstract

Field studies conducted in 1992-1995 evaluated turf injury to creeping bentgrass following winter ice encasement. During the 1995 winter, ice encasement accompanied by early snow removal caused high stand mortality for two of five cultivars/line, but ice encasement with snow cover had no effect. Our results suggest that dormancy of the cultivars affect bentgrass survival under ice encasement.
