Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "better understand how growth regulators affect putting green N [nitrogen] fertility requirements." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the study was conducted on a two year old 'Memorial' creeping bentgrass golf putting green, mowed six days a week at 0.125 inches and irrigated daily to 80% of potential evaporation." Reports that "putting green clipping yield responded linearly to N rate during all three years...doubling the N application rate increased clipping yield by approximately 25%...this is significant because doubling N fertility rate did not double clipping yield which is a concern of many golf course superintendents." Concludes that the "use of PGRs [Plant growth regulators] to suppress clipping yield during an entire growing season significantly reduces turfgrass fertility requirements."
