Abstract/Contents:"Many athletic fields are constructed with high sand content root zones. The low water and nutrient holding capacity of sand coupled with the slow establishment rate of Kentucky bluegrass make establishment difficult. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects and interactions of both a plant growth regulator (trinexapac-ethyl) and wetting agent (Aqueduct) applied during establishment. Plots were evaluated qualitatively using color and density ratings and quantitatively, measuring sod strength and verdure weights. First year results showed an increase in density due to the use of the plant growth regulator and wetting agent separately. However, these two products used in combination were detrimental to turf establishment. The PGR applied at 1.910 L ha┬╣ 28 days after seeding had significantly higher sod strength than the control."
