In this trial, sequential applications of MEGALEX were evaluated
to determine if it would improve turfgrass quality and
performance in low light shade conditions.
MEGALEX was applied with Primo® MAXX (trinexipac-ethyl) a
commonly used PGR used to shorten internodes, slow shoot
growth, and improve turfgrass quality – particularly under
The combination of MEGALEX (7.3 fl oz/1000 sq ft) and Primo
MAXX (0.125 fl oz/1000 sq ft) applied to creeping bentgrass
every 14 days consistently improved turfgrass color and quality.
It is recommended that this tank mix be used sequentially, for a
minimum of three (3) applications, prior to the onset of stress to
improve turfgrass performance under shade stress.
