Effect of growth regulators on certain turfgrasses
- C. Billot and
- A. Hentgen
The effects of three chemicals on Festuca, Lolium, Agrostis, and Phleum cultivars were evaluated at several locations in France. The chemicals are the diethanolamine salt of 6 hydroxy-3-(2H-pyridazinone (MH-30), 2-chloroethyl-trimethylammonium chloride (CCC or Chlormequat), and methyl 2-chloro-9-hydroxy (Chlorflurenol). Of the three, MH-30 resulted in the most inhibition of growth and least phytotoxicity at 5,400 g of active matter/ha applied at the beginning of the growing season. The primary influence observed was a reduction in flower heading. Additional index words: MH-30, Chlorflurenol, France, Highway turfgrass.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
