Abstract/Contents:"Drought stress confounded by heat stress is a major limiting factor in the culture of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.). The decline in plant vigor is often associated with reduced root growth, photosynthetic rate, and rise in oxidative stress. Biostimulant products have demonstrated the ability to increase turfgrass stress tolerance. Biostimulants often contain phytohormones or substances that alter endogenous hormone levels and stimulate plant growth and metabolism with a response not attributed to mineral nutrition. The objective of this research was to investigate morphological and physiological characteristics of sequential foliar applications of Root Mass 20/20®, a biostimulant applied alone and in combination with Stimulate®, a plant growth regulator (PGR) on creeping bentgrass. Plugs of 'Penn A-4' creeping bentgrass were evaluated in a growth chamber used to impose moderate heat and drought stress. In general, Root Mass 20/20 alone or in combination with Stimulate generally improved root growth, turfgrass quality, photosynthetic rate, and levels of super oxide dismutase. The data indicate excellent potential of Root Mass 20/20 and Stimulate for improving creeping bentgrass heat and drought tolerance."
