Abstract/Contents:"Demand for thick cut plastic grown sod for midseason repair or complete renovation of professional and collegiate sports field venues has increased over the past decade. However, there has been very little prior research done to examine cultural establishment factors relating to rate of establishment of plastic grown sod (PGS). The objective of this 16-week greenhouse study was to evaluate factors influencing rate of establishment, quality, and tensile strength development of Latitude 36 hybrid bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon x C. transvaalensis (Burt.) Davy). A completely randomized block design was used to accommodate all combinations of PGS cultural practices including sand topdressing particle size distribution (medium fine vs. medium coarse sand particle size distribution), mowing frequency (one vs three times weekly) and plant growth regulator application (trinexapac-ethyl at 0 vs. 0.07 ml m-2 per 14 days). Weekly during the study period, turf quality, percent green cover, soil volumetric water content for the upper 1 cm was measured for all PGS treatments. Final PGS sod mass as well as tensile strength was measured at the conclusion of the 16-week study. Root and rhizome development attributes were also evaluated using WinRhizo. Data indicate that topdressing and plant growth regulator influenced tensile strength. These data will contribute to development of establishment programs for improved PGS."
