Effect of growth regulators on certain turfgrasses

Abstract

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.
