GDDs for Timing PGR Applications and Re-Applications

Dec. 16, 2015
10 a.m., Central

Bill Kreuser, Ph.D.

Details in this webcast taught by Bill Kreuser, Ph.D., can help you maximize the benefits of plant growth regulators (PGR). Research on the use of growing degree days (GDDs) for precise scheduling of plant growth regulator (PGR) applications on cool-season putting greens and bermudagrass fairways will be reviewed. Particular attention will be paid to timing of PGR re-application with regard to growth suppression, green speed, stress tolerance and turfgrass nutrient requirements.
