Abstract/Contents:"Biostimulants containing seaweed extracts as a base ingredient are in common use in the turfgrass market, but their role in abiotic stress amelioration remains unclear. Our lab has made small steps over the last decade in uncovering the anti-senescence, cytokinin-like effects of these extracts. Stay-green effects under drought and heat stress were initially linked to improved antioxidant activity. Later, naturally high levels of cytokinins were measured in the extracts, with endogenous cytokinin increases being correlated with improvements in various metabolic functions during stress. Most recently, the rate of seaweed extract needed to provide adequate natural cytokinin concentrations for improved heat stress response have been confirmed relative to exogenous applications of trans-zeatin riboside. Supporting data will be reviewed in this presentation."
