Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to measure "ball roll and CB [creeping bentgrass] quality at green's height as affected by various PRIMO application rates and timings over the course of the growing season." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "ball roll was measured in two directions using a stimpmeter." States that "due to poor CB quality early in the season, ball roll measurements were not initiated until July 27. No differences in PRIMO application rates or timings resulted in increased ball roll distances compared to the controls." Reports that "ball roll distances were greatest at the beginning of August at 10' [feet] 6" [inches] and gradually declined to 9' 6" in mid-August before increasing toward the end of the month." Concludes that "PRIMO application at the rates and timing used for this study did not result in greater ball roll distances. However, PRIMO can help improve overall turf quality during warm summer temperatures."
