Abstract/Contents:"The growth of cool-season turfgrass species is often limited by high temperature during summer months in warm climates (JIANG AND HUANG, 2001). Another abiotic stress, drought, affects the growth of most cool-season grasses (McCANN AND HUANG, 2008). Both stresses are and will continue to be the primary concern in turfgrass management, as water is becoming increasingly limited for irrigation and temperatures are rising due to global warming (HUANG, 2004). Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb) is more tolerant to heat and drought stress in comparison to other cool-season grasses (TURGEON, 2005). But, in many situations this tolerance is not enough to withstand severe hot periods during late spring and summer or long dry periods where irrigation is scarce. Greater drought resistance in tall fescue can be achieved by reducing metabolic rate during hot and dry periods, through the use of plant growth regulators (PGRs). Trinexapac-ethyl (TE) is one of the most widely used PGRs for the management of cool and warm-season turfgrass species (McCULLOUGH et al., 2006). The use of TE has already shown greater resistance to drought and heat stresses in several cool-season turfgrass species, however, limited research has been conducted on tall fescue. The objective of this research was to test TE on tall fescue, in order to demonstrate that it can be used to save irrigation water during water stress periods."
