Abstract/Contents:"Zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.) cv. El Toro was used in this experiment to evaluate its shoot growth in terms of length and dry weight under control and different levels of Bio-Turf-Pro applications in a pot study. Four treatments [Control (no Bio-Turf-Pro), 8 Fl Oz/Gal (1/2 the recommended rate) per 1000 ft2, 16 Fl Oz/Gal (recommended rate) per 1000 ft2, and 32 Fl Oz/Gal (twice the recommended rate) per 1000 ft2 of Bio-Turf-Pro], and six replications of each treatment were used in a RCB design in this investigation. Plants were allowed to grow under the above treatment conditions for eight weeks. Plant shoots (clippings) were harvested bi-weekly for the evaluation of the dry-matter production. At each harvest, shoot lengths were measured and recorded and the visual growth was also evaluated before the harvest was made. The harvested plant materials were oven dried at 60°C and dry weights were measured and recorded. The shoot growth (length) was stimulated under any levels of Bio-Turf-Pro application rates compared with the control. Among the treatment rates, the 16 Fl Oz/Gal (the recommended rate) per 1000 ft2] numerically stimulated the shoot length the most. However in most cases, there was not statistically significant differences detected among the 8 (1/2 the recommended rate) per 1000 ft2, 16 Fl Oz/Gal (the recommended rate) per 1000 ft2] and the 32 Fl Oz/Gal (twice the recommended rate) per 1000 ft2] application rates of the compound on the shoot length of the grass. The shoot (clippings) dry weights of the plants followed essentially the same pattern as the shoot lengths. The visual evaluation of the grass supported the measured parameters."
