Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted to "determine the performance of Champion bermudagrass under shade in the field; optimal nitrogen rates for growing Champion bermudagrass in shade; the interactive effects of Primo (trinexapac-ethyl, Syngenta), various nitrogen rates and iron in a reduced light environment; and the effect of nitrogen rates, Primo, iron and various light intensities on thatch accumulation in Champion bermudagrass over a two-year period." States that "research was conducted from June 15 to [September] 15, 2006, and repeated in 2007 at the Turfgrass Research Center, Clemson University, Clemson, [South Carolina]." Concludes that "applying nitrogen at 40% less than the recommended rates for bermudagrass in full sunlight and making routine Primo applications reduced Champion bermudagrass vertical shoot growth, which minimized shoot tissue removed from daily mowing, thereby improving turfgrass quality under shade. However, even when these recommendations were followed, after three months of shade, Champion bermudagrass quality was below commercially acceptable standards."
