Abstract/Contents:"Trinexapac-ethyl is a foliar-applied turfgrass growth regulator preferably absorbed by the base of turfgrass plants. The range of recommended spray carrier volumes for trinexapac-ethyl is from 187 to 1627 L/ha. Based on the preferred absorption site it was hypothesized that factors interacting with spray carrier volume could influence trinexapac-ethyl efficacy. A field study was conducted in the fall of 1996 to determine if spray volume, 187, 561, and 1683 L/ha, interacted with cutting height, 5, 7.5, and 10 cm, to affect trinexapac ethyl efficacy on Blacksburg Kentucky bluegrass. Trinexapac-ethyl was applied at 0.29 kg/ha. Dry weights of clippings harvested from all plots were evaluated a 7, 14, 21, and 28 DAT. At 21 DAT, trinexapac-ethyl activity was not affected by spray volume at the 7.5 cm cutting height. At either the 5 or 10 cm cutting height, trinexapac-ethyl activity increased with increasing spray volume. A greenhouse study was done to determine if the adjuvants, ammonium sulfate or Sylgard 309, interacted with spray carrier volume to affect the efficacy of trinexapac-ethyl on Mondial perennial ryegrass. Treatments included trinexapac-ethyl at 0.19 kg/ha with ammonium sulfate (0.5% v/v), Sylgard 309 (0.5% v/v), or both. Spray carrier volumes studied were 187, 561, 935, 1309, and 1683 L/ha. Fresh weights of clippings harvested from all treatments were evaluated at 7, 14, 21, and 28 DAT. At 14 DAT, ammonium sulfate at 187 L/ha spray carrier volume increased and at 1683 L/ha decreased the activity of trinexapac-ethyl as compared to treatments containing only trinexapac-ethyl. A similar pattern was not seen with Sylgard 309. Efficacy observed suggested the interaction of site of absorption movement of trinexapac-ethyl in the turf profile as a function of cutting height, spray carrier volume, and adjuvant effect."
