Winterkill Recovery Techniques

Published by


There are more reports of turfgrass winterkill from around the US. At first, we thought most of the damage was limited to winter desiccation in the Central Great Plains. Unfortunately, we’ve received reports from coast to coast.

Zac Reicher, PhD from Bayer Environmental Science and I hosted a live web-meeting to discuss techniques to recover from winterkill and enhance spring-seeding success. We highlight research we conducted together when we were both at the University of Nebraska after winterkill recovery in 2014. Topics include spring seeding, fertility, covers, and pest control to maximize seeding success.

The video was posted to the new GreenKeeper YouTube channel: We hope this short web-meeting is helpful, and that everyone can quickly recover from winter injury in 2022.
