Abstract/Contents:The feasibility of growth inhibitors for use in chemical edging was assessed at Bryan Municipal Golf Course and at Briarcrest C.C., both in Bryan, Texas. Common bermudagrass and Tifway hybrid bermudagrass, respectively, dominated both courses. Nine treatments of 4 different growth inhibitors were applied along with a series of bunker perimeters one day after trimming the edges. Results on common bermudagrass, 6 weeks after the applications, revealed that Flurprimidol (EL-5000) at 1.25 lb. ai/A reduced stolon growth 36%. Lowest in reduction was Flurprimidol at .75 lb ai/A. Mefluidide (Embark + R), MBR 18337, and combinations of MBR 18337 and Flurprimidol were intermediate in controlling growth. Results on Tifway bermudagrass 10 weeks after application showed that Flurprimidol + MBR 18337 applied at 1.25 + .5 lb ai/A reduced stolon growth 69.5%. The least effective was Flurprimidol + MBR 18337 at 1.25 + .25 lb ai/A (42.4%). Other combination rates of Flurprimidol + MBR 18337 and Mefludidide were intermediate in controlling stolon growth.
