Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted by the O.J Noer Turfgrass Research and Education Facility to determine "whether a GDD [growing degree day] model could predict trinexapac-ethyl degradation on creeping bentgrass...greens. The ultimate goal was to determine a GDD interval that would sustain the yield suppression (and desirable responses such as quality enhancement) during the entire growing season." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "growing degree days were calculated in degrees Celcius with a base temperature of 0." Reports that "applying Primo Maxx every 200 GDD during the three years of this study reduced the clipping yield of creeping bentgrass greens by approximately 20%." Concludes that "increased replication frequency and not increased application rate, are required to sustain yield suppression when Primo metabolism is greatest during the heat of the summer."
