USGA Summary Points:TurfVigor- and CPR-treated plots consistently maintained significantly higher turf quality than both nutrient and water control plots during the whole treatment period. Turf quality of Primo Max-treated plots was also higher than that of the nutrient and water control plots starting from mid-August. Other products, such as BA, AVG, and Aminoplex had some positive effects in August. Shoot growth and physiological activity of creeping bentgrass was promoted when treated with certain biostimulants or PGRs. The decline of canopy photosynthetic rate was less severe in TurfVigor-, Primo Max-, and BA-treated plots during mid-July and/or early August. Canopy density and color were maintained higher in CPR-, TurfVigor-, and Primo Max-treated plots in July and August. The only positive effects on root length and surface area were observed in the Proxy- and StressGard-treated plots in early September, indicating this product may affect the recovery of creeping bentgrass from summer stress. Our results suggested that proper use of selected biostimulants and PGRs could promote turf growth and alleviate summer bentgrass decline in warm climates.
