Sprouting of Coastal Bermudagrass Stolons1
- E. R. Beaty2
Sprouting of ‘Coastal’ bermudagrass sprigs harvested at monthly intervals between October 1, 1953, and February 1, 1954, averaged 94.5%. Sprigs planted the day harvested on the average sprouted 96.0% and sprigs stored for 20 days averaged 94.75%. Sprigs stored in moist sawdust at 70F initiated shoot and root development during storage. These shoots were extremely succulent and would be subject to sprig damage at planting. Sprigs stored at 40F had no shoot development, but sprouting was slighty reduced. A commercial preparation of 3-indole acetic acid did not increase sprouting or root development.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
