    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
