Abstract/Contents:An application of 240 g mefluidide/ha 3 days after mowing produced 25-30% growth inhibition. A similar application 3 days before mowing resulted in a 50% growth inhibition but impaired the grass color. Wear tests, using a studded roller, showed that the proportion of Poa pratensis increased at the expense of Festuca rubra on mefluidide-treated turf, but wear did not produce any change in the composition of untreated turf. Growth inhibition was greatest with P. pratensis cvs Fylking and Baron and F. rubra cv. Dawson and least with Lolium perenne cv. Loretta. The reaction of L. perenne cv. Majestic and Agrostis tenuis cv. Tracenta was intermediate.
