Abstract/Contents:"Trinexepac-ethyl (TE) applied at 1EC will reduce clipping yield and increase quality ratings of creeping bentgrass from 14 to 35 DAT. TE is primarily foliar absorbed. If granular formulations of TE provide equivalent results, less expensive equipment could be used for application. The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of granular vs. sprayable TE on clipping yield of fairway height creeping bentgrass and to determine the change in efficacy, if any, when applying granular TE to wet or dry turf canopy. The experiment was conducted at the Hancock Turfgrass Research Center in East Lansing, MI. Eighteen treatments were applied in a RCB design on May 21, 1997 to a three-year old 'Providence' creeping bentgrass fairway. Granular TE was applied with and without a fertilizer carrier. Granular products were formulated to apply TE at 0.13 kg/ha. Sprayable TE was applied at 0.31 kg/ha. Turfgrass quality ratings were taken at 1, 3, 4, and 5 WAT. Turfgrass quality ratings were increased by all treatments. Clipping yield was measured at 1, 3, and 5 WAT. Sprayable TE applied to a dry turf canopy reduced clipping production by 50%. Sprayable TE applied to wet turf canopy reduced clipping production by 15%. Application timing did not affect the granular TE treatments. Granular applications of TE reduced clipping production by 25%. Granular TE formulated with fertilizer did not reduce clipping yield."
