Cold Season Transition and Microbials
Join our exclusive webinar to uncover the key role of microbes in turfgrass during the winter-to-spring transition. Learn how microbes impact soil health, winter stress, and turf regeneration. Discover why microbes are crucial for a successful spring green-up and for managing summer drought and disease stress.
- Recovery from Winterkill and Other Cold Season Stress: Understand the science behind winterkill, including low-temperature kill, winter desiccation, and diseases like snow mold.
- The Power of the Microbiome: Discover why a healthy microbiome is key to a successful winter-to-spring transition for your turfgrass.
- Root and Tissue Regeneration: Explore the nitrogen gap and how microbial products aid in the recovery and regeneration of grass roots and tissues post-winter.
- Microbials and Overseeding: Learn the critical role microbes play in enhancing seed germination and establishing a lush, green turf earlier in the season.
