Abstract

In this study plots of Kentucky bluegrass were treated by the experimental biostimulant agent Bolster in order to evaluate its effects on drought resistance. The phytochemical activity of the plant was determined with visual ratings and chlorophyll index measurements. Plant recovery was also monitored between treatments. Data collected shows that there was not a statistical improvement from the treatment in drought stress or recovery. The treatment that yielded the best results was 96 ml 100 m2, although even this did not differ significantly from the control.
