Ethic 480 Turfgrass Growth Regulator [Commercial Strength]
Ethic 480 is a plant growth regulator containing 480g/L of the active ingredient Ethephon. It is registered for the control of wintergrass (Poa annua) seedhead in Cool Season turf and Golf Green situations. Ethic 480 also helps to control growth of desirable cool season turfgrasses, providing a denser, tighter-knit and more playable surface in sportsturf swards.
Details on how it works
By applying Ethic 480 TGR, which breaks down to ethylene inside the plant in early spring, the levels of ethylene within the plant are artificially higher than normal at that time of the year. This therefore tricks the wintergrass plant into delaying or preventing the initial boot stage in the reproductive phase from taking place. As a result, wintergrass seedhead emergence is restricted and the negative impacts that it usually provides in sportsturf surfaces, such as poor ball roll and reduced aesthetic appearance.
