Abstract/Contents:"Sprigs of 'Meyer' zoysiagrass (Zoysia japonica Steud.) were treated with urea nitrogen, a biostimulator, and one of three preemergence herbicides or one of two postemergence herbicides to hasten establishment in two field studies. Monthly application of N at 48 kg x ha⁻1 during the growing season had no influence on sprig establishment the first year, but slightly increased (+5%) zoysiagrass cover the second year. Presoaking sprigs in a solution containing (mg x L⁻1) 173 auxin and 81 cytokinin, and iron at 1.25 g x L⁻1 before broadcasting of sprigs, and biweekly sprays (g x ha⁻1) of 53 auxin and 24 cytokinin, and iron at 0.2 g x L⁻1 or (g x ha⁻1) 68 auxin and 36 cytokinin, and iron at 1.45 g x L^D-1 after broadcasting sprigs had no effect on zoysiagrass cover or rooting. Preemergence and postemergence herbicide use generally enhanced zoysiagrass cover by reducing smooth crabgrass competition [Digitaria ischaemum (Schreb. ex Schweig) Schreb. ex Muhl]. Oxadiazon enhanced zoysiagrass coverage more than dithiopyr, pendimethalin, quinclorac, or fenoxaprop. Oxadiazon and dithiopyr provided similar levels of crabgrass control, but dithiopyr reduced 'Meyer' zoysiagrass midsummer root growth."
