salt-killed turf

The harsh environment of roadsides can make establishing turfgrass and keeping vegetation alive difficult. There are various stresses, such as salt, heat and ice, occurring on roadsides that may result in installation failures, causing loss of time and resources. The University of Minnesota Turfgrass Research program conducts many research projects on roadside vegetation as part of a long-term effort to determine how best to ensure success of turfgrass installations under the wide-ranging conditions that occur in roadside environments.
