USGA Summary Points:Turfgrass breeders should screen new germplasm for traffic tolerance in autumn Differences in heat stress tolerance have been identified and we are now working on ways to use that information as we develop new fin [fine] fescue cultivars Hard and sheep fescue have superior snow mold resistance compared to other fine fescues and should be utilized in northern climates where snow mold is a concern.
