Abstract/Contents:Profiles plant growth regulators (PGRS), and states that they "influence plant growth and development by affecting one or more plant hormones that are involved in cell elongation, cell division or ethylene production." Answers questions on plant growth regulators. States that they can be used on the golf courses to slow turf growth and reduce clippings, to reduce scalping, to reduce equipment wear, to reduce mowing and fuel consumption, to reduce hand-trimming, to increase putting speed, to maintain and reduce Poa annua, to suppress Poa annua seedheads, improve turf stress tolerance and to improve seed establishment. Recommends Mefluidide to suppress Poa annua seedheads in bentgrass. Notes that plant growth regulators can be tank-mixed with other products but suggests that one must be careful. States that plant growth regulator rates varies due to the turf responses to environment and cultural practices change. Explains that "the product label will list the turf species that the plant growth regulator can be applied to." Recommends steps to start a PGR program, including deciding what benefits are needed, identifying the main turfgrass species, reviewing the plant growth regulator label, talking to company on the ebst way to use the product, talk to other superintendents and managers who have used the product, talking with state university researchers, reviewing the maintenance plan and determine the best plant growth regulator product, "test any new product on a small area first", and " keep records and take pictures of the turf response."
