T. Blunt, T. Koski, and N. Tisserat

August 2013

Research

The benefits of spring snow removal in Typhula blight development suppression and freeze avoidance have not been demonstrated in Colorado. We compared Typhula blight severity and turfgrass health in Kentucky bluegrass and annual bluegrass fairways where snow was removed weekly from late October through mid-November, from early- to mid-March until the end of the snow period, or not removed.
