Abstract/Contents:"Trinexapac-ethyl (TE) is a plant growth regulator that is primarily used in turfgrass for reducing mowing requirements due to its ability to limit cell elongation and vertical shoot growth. It is still not well understood how rates and reapplication intervals of TE effect trafficked bermudagrass sports field playing characteristics, nor is there any available information describing potential benefits of implementing newer cultivation methodologies with TE programs. The objective of this study was to determine how TE rate, reapplication interval, and stoppage, in addition to cultivation practices, influence the playability of trafficked bermudagrass during simulated American football seasons. Research was conducted in summer and fall 2021 at the Texas A&M University Turfgrass Field Laboratory in College Station, TX on two established areas simulating a high school-level field {TifTuf [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. x Cynodon transvaalensis Burtt Davy] on native soil mowed at 1.9 cm} and a collegiate-level field ['Latitude 36' mowed at 1.3 cm on a sand-capped soil as a randomized complete block design arranged as a 4x7 factorial. Main plots consisted of three cultivation treatments + an untreated control using either a rake and/or verticutter bi-monthly or monthly, and stopped once the study areas were overseeded with perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne). Subplots were six TE treatments + an untreated control applied at a monthly full label rate (0.32 L ha-1) or bi-weekly split label rate (0.16 L ha-1) prior to traffic. Once traffic began, TE rates either continued or were split in half, while other TE treatments completely stopped. Traffic timing and frequency were based on a local high school and collegiate teams American football schedule for the 'TifTuf' and 'Latitude 36' scenarios, respectively. Data were collected bi-weekly on turfgrass quality and cover metrics (subjective and objective), as well as rotational shear strength, surface hardness, and root mass."
