Regional Optimization of Roadside Turfgrass Seed Mixtures

The objective of this study is to identify turfgrasses that possess traits necessary to survive in the harsh roadside environments found throughout Minnesota. The University will investigate the impacts of possibly the three most limiting environmental conditions (heat, salt, ice cover) on multiple cultivars from up to fifteen individual turfgrass species. Results from this research will be used to update the current Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) Seeding Manual and provide MnDOT with guidance about the need for region-specific seed mixture recommendations.
