Abstract/Contents:"Preemergence herbicides were applied to immature and mature Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.). Sod development was evaluated by stand estimates and measurements of sod strength. The effect on rooting of transplanted sod was determined by measuring the weight of roots grown from sod plugs on sand and by measuring the force required to lift sod plugs from soil. The effect of postemergence herbicides on the rooting of transplanted sod was also investigated. Immature grass treated with benefin, butralin, DCPA, oxadiazon and prosulfalin had less grass cover up to ten weeks after treatment while sod strength was reduced up to 23 weeks by bensulide and prosulfalin. No effect on sod development was noted from siduron. Bensulide and prosulfalin inhibited the rooting of sod transplanted 23 weeks after treatment. Some root inhibition of sod transplanted 16 weeks after treatment was caused by benefin and DCPA. With mature sod bensulide and prosulfalin inhibited rooting when transplanted 10 to 12 weeks after treatment. Some root inhibition was also detected from benefin. Mature grass treated two or four weeks before transplanting in the spring with 2,4-D and mixtures of 2,4-D with either dicamba, mecoprop or silvex had no affect [effect] on rooting. In one test 2,4-D with either mecoprop or silvex applied two weeks before transplanting in the fall reduced root growth. Herbicides applied two weeks after transplanning [transplanting] resulted in root inhibition. Those used four weeks after transplanting in the spring did not reduce root growth while those used in the fall resulted in root inhibition."
