With improved turf-type tall fescue cultivars, more facilities are choosing tall fescue over Kentucky bluegrass due to better traffic and drought tolerance. As with any change, this means new steps in turf management. In this 60-minute webinar presented by the Oregon Tall Fescue Commission, Adam Thoms, Ph.D., shares knowledge on height of cut and traffic tolerance from recent research conducted in Iowa. They looked at what mowing height offers the best aesthetic quality as well as safety. Listen in to hear what the study found about surface hardness, soil moisture and more nuances of mowing.
