I have also mixed Iron into the mix to maintain some green color in the turf.
Something I've found when using PGR's. Yes, they may slow down overall growth slightly, but when used in tandem with a good fert. program they increase wear tolerance and turf density. The use of PGR's changed the plants verticle growth to horizontal growth, creating the turf I stated above. But I havent seen a PGR decrease the turfs recover-ability when used correctly.
I'm specfically talking about a college football field, and cool season turf.

I spray my football field with Primo(bermuda) and it really helps with the lateral growth. the turf is healthier and I mow 1 time less often
