Abstract/Contents:"The growth of lawn grass is influenced by the nutrient supply and particularly by the temperature and rainfall. This fact and also the intensity of lawn care determine to a great extent how often the sward is mowed. Trials with a new growth regulator by 3-M Company, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, show that the normal mowing interval of about 8 days in Germany can be extended by several weeks. Depending on the rate and time of application, treatment with N- (2,4-dimethyl-5-(((trifluorornethyl)sulfonyl)amino)phenyl) acetamide brings appropriate degress [degrees] of inhibition of growth in height. In addition, the production of seed bearers is restricted. The best results are achieved if treatment is carried out about 3 - 4 days before or after mowing and at least 3 weeks after the last fertilizer application. The most effective application rate lies in the region of 240 - 360 g/a. i. per hectare. The new growth regulator described here is distinguished by its good crop tolerance and broad range of activity within the assortment of grass lawns."
