Registered Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs) for turf are synthetic (or biological) compounds that have been developed to positively affect the growth and development of plants. They are widely used in turf management to improve the quality and stress tolerance of turfgrass, to encourage healthy root development, and to reduce the frequency of mowing requirements.
PGRs work by regulating the activity of plant hormones, which are responsible for controlling various aspects of plant growth and development. By manipulating these hormones, PGRs can help to achieve specific goals, such as reducing the growth rate of the turf, improving the density of the turf, or enhancing its drought tolerance.
One of the key benefits of PGRs in turf management is their ability to reduce the frequency of mowing requirements. By slowing down the growth rate of the turf, PGRs can help to reduce the need for frequent mowing, which can save time, labour, and fuel costs.
Overall, the use of PGRs in turf management can provide a huge range of benefits, from reducing mowing requirements to improving the overall quality and stress tolerance of the turf. By carefully selecting and applying PGRs, turf managers can achieve specific goals and maintain healthy, vibrant and high quality turf throughout the growing season.
