“Greenhouse gas fluxes from turfgrass systems: Species, growth rate, clipping management, and environmental effects” with Drs. Quincy Law and Jon Trappe
Greenhouse gases are naturally occurring gases that contribute to climate change. These gases, like carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane, are both absorbed and produced by turfgrasses; however, it is possible that choosing the right grass species and management practices can help reduce emissions. In this episode, Drs. Quincy Law and Jon Trappe discuss two experiments in which they tried to pinpoint which grass species and management practices are most effective at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from turfgrasses.
