Can growing degree-days (GDDs) help you make more precise plant growth regulator (PGR) reapplications on ultradwarf bermudagrass putting greens? More importantly, can GDDs improve PGR performance and save money? In this 60-minute webinar, Austin Brown will answer these questions as he reviews a recent PGR study at Auburn University. Emphasis will be placed on Primo Maxx applications for ultradwarf bermudagrass greens.
