USGA Summary Points:Impermeable covers, permeable covers, and sand topdressing consistently increased crownmoisture retention during winter, and recovery in spring was greatest with impermeable covers. Sprayable products did not improve crown-moisture retention when desiccation pressure was most severe, but the anti-transpirant used improved quality under milder conditions. Germination blankets and fertilizer are commonly used in early spring to encourage recovery following desiccation injury, but were not effective strategies in this research. Sand topdressing requires fewer labor hours compared to installing and removing covers, and may be preferred on golf courses where labor is limiting.
