Abstract/Contents:Discusses plant growth regulators (PGRs), focusing on their use on golf courses "to suppress seedheads and vegetative growth of desirable turfgrasses." Overviews Type I and Type II PGRs, noting that Type I suppress growth faster and have a shorter period of suppression than Type II. States that "timing of application with PGRs is critical to achieve desired results." Briefly profiles trinexapac-ethyl, mefluidide, paclobutrazol, and flurprimidol, detailing their effectiveness in controlling Poa annua.
