dc.description.abstractProxy (ethephon) was applied to 100% pure stands of Poa annua as either a single or repeat application 24 days apart at both a five and ten-ounce product rate per 1000 square feet. Percent plot seed heads were decreased significantly on three of five evaluation dates before either the loss of treatment effect and/or environmental conditions triggered profuse flowering (by 20 April, 2000). The five-ounce rate produced moderate seed head suppression at 16 and 25 days after the first treatments by which afterwards, control was minimal. By April, the five-ounce repeat applications were no better in suppression of seed heads than either of the single applications, regardless of application timing (March 3 or 29). The ten-ounce rates generally produced 40% - 80% greater seed heads suppression than the five-ounce rate treatments. Maximum seed head control was achieved by the repeat applications (March 3 and 29) of the ten-ounce rate, which consistently produced between 8% and 19%, seed head cover up until the first ten days of April 2000. Proxy, when applied at the five-ounce/M rate had the greatest effect in seed head suppression early in the test (10 March). Perhaps earlier season applications at the five-ounce rate may be necessary to manifest greater suppression initially, and perhaps in a cumulative fashion for season long control.
