Abstract/Contents:Discusses turf growth rate, stating that "it is...a very good indicator of the overall health of a stand of turf, and growth rate is a primary determinant of how much nutrients or water a plant will use." Addresses a study conducted to determine the effects of Primo Maxx on the growth of bentgrass and Poa annua, provides a result obtained stating that "creeping bentgrass mown at 0.125 inches grows 50% [percent] faster than the same grass mown at 0.250 inches." Suggests that "just being aware of this physiological difference may help...[superintendents] make a better decision when stressful conditions arrive." Recommends that superintendents "decrease putting green growth rate to conserve the plants energy reserves this season."
