What soil temperature range is best for seed germination and the growth of turfgrass species?

0

Soil temperature greatly influences many activities and reactions that take place in the soil. Seed germination is no exception. There is a distinct temperature range in which optimum turfgrass germination and growth occur. The optimum range for germination and growth of cool season turfgrasses (such as Tall Fescue) is approximately 65+ degrees. The optimum temperatures for the growth of warm season grasses like bermudas are between 70 and 95 degrees.
