Abstract/Contents:"Bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum) is the most commonly used roadside grass in Florida. Its drought tolerance and adaptation to sandy soils make bahiagrass the best choice for use in low maintenance turf situations. One major disadvantage of bahiagrass is the production of tall inflorescences ("seedheads") in the spring and summer months. These seedheads are not only unsightly but also increase mowing requirements. Plant growth regulators have been used commercially and experimentally in turf to suppress seedhead production. The majority of research on seedhead suppression has been conducted on cool season grasses such as tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass. Little information is available on the effects of these materials on seedhead production in bahiagrass and other warm season turfgrasses. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of several plant growth regulators and herbicides on seedhead production, growth rate, and turf quality of 'Pensacola' bahiagrass."
