Synopsis

Turfgrass is required to meet a challenging range of aesthetic, functional and environmental requirements, whilst also mitigating the threat of abiotic and biotic stresses which are being accentuated by climate change. The turfgrass industry is also facing increasing pressure to reduce its environmental impact and advance more sustainable maintenance practices that utilise and/or optimise fewer agronomic-related resources.



Achieving sustainable turfgrass management summarises the wealth of recent research that addresses these challenges, whilst also identifying potential mitigation strategies to reduce the sector's contribution to climate change, such as reduced fertilizer use and water conservation. This collection highlights developments in breeding for improved cultivars of turfgrass with enhanced abiotic and biotic stress responses, as well as climate resilience. Sustainable practices for the successful establishment and management of a variety of turfgrass systems are discussed, including both cool- and warm-season turfgrass.
