Residue Management Systems for Kentucky Bluegrass Without Burning Grant uri icon



  • Sustained bluegrass seed productivity historically has relied on open-field burning of post-harvest residues that has been associated with significant air quality issues and public health impacts. This project examines the economically sustainable Kentucky bluegrass management systems that minimize or eliminate the need for open-field burning of residues, thereby substantially improving regional air, soil, and water quality.
