  Document HLA-6608 Managing Turfgrass in the Shade in Oklahoma

By Justin Moss, David Hillock and Dennis Martin. Light is a basic requirement for turfgrass growth and is often limiting in the landscape due to shade provided by trees, shrubs, buildings, homes or other structures. Photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) refers to the spectral range of solar radiation from 400 nm to 700 nm (nanometers). Plants contain chlorophyll, which absorbs light in the PAR range for photosynthesis. All turfgrasses will grow best in full-sun conditions provided their management requirements are satisfied. In shaded areas, the specific wavelengths of light available to a turfgrass plant are altered and the amount of light available can reduce the plant's ability to efficiently perform photosynthesis. Consequently, turfgrasses can be difficult to grow in shady areas, and proper management strategies are needed for success. Reviewed July 2016.
