Abstract: This research study was conducted to evaluate experimental PGR effects on biomass in comparison to Primo MASS for application to golf courses and turfgrass. As well as analyzing crop safety for turf to determine the appropriate rate of Primo MAXX to be added. Six different treatments were applied to plots to creeping bentgrass including a control group. After treatment, there was no significant decline in uniformity and quality of the turf. This is consistent with a trial conducted in 2008. All of the treatments showed a neutral or positive correlation on treatment and turf quality. 4 weeks after treatment the effects from the first treatment had almost completely disappeared, and had little response after the addition of the second treatment.
