Abstract/Contents:"The establishment of turf on roads and motor-ways or another 'utilitary' grass cover involves, necessarily, a certain number of cuttings during the year so as to reduce the height of the grasses and prevent the unnecessary accumulation of dry vegetable matter. Knowing the influence of certain chemicals on the development of grasses, a number of trials were set up in different parts of France, with the aim to examine the influence of chemical products on different grass species (tall fescue, red fescue, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass, meadowgrass, diploid timothy) generally used for turf with the purpose of delaying or even of eliminating the first annual cutting (by far the most important one) so as to reduce the number of yearly mowings. It appeared that amongst the chemicals used, M H 30 was the most efficient and the least phytotoxic when applied in the proportion of 5.400 g M A /ha at the beginning of the growing season. This product affects grasses in influencing earing. The efficiency of the treatment is in close relation with the physiological stadium manifested by the height of the apex. In these conditions and if several species enter into the composition of the turf, the time of application must be determined by means of a botanical analysis before the treatment so as to obtain an optimal efficiency. In case of too great differences of earliness, it would seem logical than with two treatments one could obtain satisfactory results."
