Abstract/Contents:"Two experiments were conducted on bermudagrass to determine if the use of plant growth regulators PGR'S could reduce the mowing interval of Tifgreen bermudagrass, and prevent scalping on fairway maintained Tifway bermudagrass. Both CUTLESS and PRIMO reduced mowing requirements and of Tifgreen bermudagrass for 3-4 weeks. The Tifgreen was maintained at a unusually high base height of 1.75 inches. Under fairway conditions, PRIMO caused a quick response in increased turf color (from green to dark-blue green) along with some leaf puckering/rolling type symptoms. Although color was acceptable, the burning of lower leaf sheaths from PRIMO caused lower overall turfgrass quality scores temporarily. CUTLESS showed some discoloration and some necrosis (10 DAT). By 17 DAT, enhanced color responses were observed for PGR treated turf. However, some discoloration (leaf/sheath necrosis) remained from all treatments which decreased overall turf quality. Reduced scalping (from PGRS used in a standard mowing program) was not realized."
