Abstract/Contents:This study was conducted to assess the benefits of the plant growth regulator CGA163935 at three rates and two band widths, plus glyphosate, for inhibiting lateral stem growth on Tifway bermudagrass. Lateral stem regrowth in terms of total number of emerging stolons from a mechanically edged border was significantly reduced by all but one treatment, the CGA163935 at a 0.72 lb/ac rate in a 16 inch band. Stolon regrowth appeared to be affected by band width more than material rate when comparing the CGA163935 treatments. Treatments of CGA163935 did affect turf color along the border, while glyphosate caused a distinct and rather objectionable yellowing for several weeks.
