Abstract/Contents:"A lower degree of homogeneity of turfgrass along roadsides is generally accepted than would be required for lawns. Hence the degree of browning injury that frequently accompanies chemical retardation of foliage and more importantly, seeds talk suppression, may be acceptable along roadsides. In replicated field trials over the past several years rates of maleic hydrazide and several experimental growth retardants were applied alone and in combinations to as many as twelve turfgrasses, including varieties within species. Differential time of spring green-up and seeds talk elongation of these grasses were documented and related to time of application of growth retardants. Maleic hydrazide, Sustar, and MBR 12325 were among the chemicals which when applied at recommended rates while internodes were beginning to elongate, provided reasonably good control of most grasses without excessive injury. Seedstalks of 'Merion' and 'Kenblue' Kentucky bluegrass were more completely suppressed than were those of the high-seed-producing cultivar 'Newport'. The vigorous Kentucky 31 tall fescue was generally injured less than fine turfgrasses. Second-year treatments of growth retardants had debilitating effects on grasses maintained at a low level of management on less productive sites."
