Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass is a widely used warm-season turfgrass species for golf course fairways, rough, and tees throughout southern and central California. In response to increasing drought, limited water availability, and escalating irrigation costs, many golf courses in northern California are transitioning from cool-season turf to bermudagrass. However, a common issue with bermudagrass is its tendency to produce unsightly seedheads or inflorescences throughout the spring, which can disrupt playability. This research aimed to assess the most effective plant growth regulators (PGRs) and herbicides, applied either alone or in tank mixes, for suppressing seedheads during the spring season. The study was conducted across three golf courses in California and the UCR turfgrass research facility, utilizing 'Santa Ana,' a widely popular hybrid bermudagrass known for its abundant flowering after spring green-up. Preliminary findings indicated that optimal seedhead suppression was achieved using four applications of ethephon at three-week intervals. However, it was observed that the addition of certain PGRs often improved visual quality without compromising seedhead suppression."
