dc.description.abstractShelf-life and transplantation success of sodded and sprigged turfgrasses are negatively affected by disruptive harvest techniques and post-harvest handling/storage conditions. Air and light are limited inside of stacked pallets of sod or masses of sprigs/plugs, which triggers multiple processes that may lead to poor transplant success. Current research looks at the effects of several commercially available turfgrass products and cultural practices on post-harvest bermudagrass storage, its grow-in after transplantation, and harvested area recovery. Ensilation and internal heating sometimes observed in stored, full-sized pallets of sod were difficult to simulate in small-size sod masses. When storage environment and post-harvest conditions were controlled, refrigeration of stored bermudagrass slowed establishment, which is contrary to common knowledge and industry practice. Fluxapyroxad + pyraclostrobin fungicide positively affected turfgrass grow-in during field and greenhouse experiments, and in some instances hastened growth and recovery of bermudagrass.en_US
