Astro 120 ME - Growth Regulator (1L)
For the Regulation of Leaf and Stem Growth of Grass Species and as an Aid in Turf Management, and as an Aid in Winter Grass Management.
Trinexapac-ethyl inhibits gibberellic acid biosynthesis, resulting in decreased cellular elongation and internode length. After application, any new growth has shortened internodes, more tillers, and reduced vertical growth compared to untreated turf. Trinex 120ME Growth Regulator improves turf stand, uniformity and health to provide a smooth, tightly knit cover that is better able to withstand stress. Trinex 120ME Growth Regulator achieves this by increasing the lateral spread and turf density, in addition to slowing the vertical growth of the grass. This enhances the playability of many surfaces including fairways, greens and tees on golf courses as well as sport fields and other playing surfaces.
The recommended use rates are designed to give approximately a 50% reduction in clippings over a 4 to 6 week period. In practise the amount of growth regulation achieved will vary between situations due to environmental conditions and management practices. To some extent therefore application rates will need to be adjusted to match growing conditions, management practices and the amount of growth regulation required. Repeat applications can be made as soon as turf resumes growth or more suppression is required. Trinex 120ME Growth Regulator should be applied to actively growing turf, at least 6 hours before or after mowing.
Good mowing management leading up to application is required to achieve a good quality turf surface and to obtain the best results.
