Abstract/Contents:"Initially, a study was conducted in which the soil surface was treated prior to laying the sod. In later studies, the sod was placed, then herbicides applied over the top as is desirable for crabgrass control in freshly laid sod. The soil was freshly prepared immediately before placing sod. Sod strips (9.3 dm2) were laid on 1.25 cm mesh hardware cloth with a frame. Turfgrass strips were allowed 28 days for root development through the hardware cloth into the soil under good management practices, including irrigation. A tripod and winch was used to pull sod strips from soil, pulling on the four corners of the frame in a verticle [vertical] direction. Thirdly, bermudagrass treated once, twice or three times during the year in the field was moved as sod and the effect on rooting evaluated in the greenhouse. In this case, 20-cm diameter sod strips were used. Bensulide and benefin gave similar responses on the rooting of turfgrasses. The order of turfgrasses, from least to most inhibited, was Kentucky 31 fescue, Merion Kentucky bluegrass, and Tifgreen bermudagrass. At rates normally used for crabgrass control, bluegrass rooting strength was reduced more than 50%. DCPA and siduron gave little effect on fescue and bluegrass. However, siduron gave complete inhibition of rooting in Tifgreen bermudagrass. Normal rates of DCPA reduced rooting about 30%. When evaluated in the fall at one month after the last treatment, DCPA and benefin did not reduce the rooting of Tifdwarf bermudagrass sod, which received up to three normal treatments during the year. On the other hand, fall rooting was reduced by spring treatments with bensulide (40%) and siduron (20%). When three times the normal rate was used in spring, inhibition of rooting was 100% for bensulide, 90% for terbutol and 100% for siduron (dead). The normal rate applied just one month before rooting evaluation caused inhibition of 60% for bensulide and terbutol and 30% for siduron."
