Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study designed to "develop a seasonal bentgrass rooting pattern for 'Penncross' bentgrass under three different mowing heights and also to examine the effects of plant growth regulators (Primo, TGR Turf Enhancer^D]T^D]M, and Cutless^D]T^D]M) on bentgrass root growth." Reports that "maximum root biomass occurred in May" and "root growth was reinitiated in late September." Results also indicate that "there was no difference in root biomass between the 5/32 in. and 3/16 in. mowing height," but that "the 1/8 in. mowing height had significantly less root biomass than did the higher mowing heights."
