Interesting thought this week I picked up from Kevin Frank in the Crop and Soil Sciences department at Michigan State University.heat tracks In his post on the Crop Advisory Alert he suggests that that adundant rainfall and cool temps from this spring may actually hurt turf when it comes to summer drought stress.  Cool season turf in Michigan produce the majority of roots in spring and fall and the excessive rain produced some saturated soils diminishing root development. To make a “lawn” story short, this could be interesting when the heat of summer actually does arrive in West Michigan.
