    I would appreciate experienced suggestions on a Primo rate for 419 Tif mainly to improve density appearance(mowing reduction is not my concern). My experience on ag applications of PGR's is to regulate rates relative to soil/fertility/moisture/heat conditions. We often have excellent results using much less than recommended label rates---but this was not turf. One sports field manager suggested starting at a rate of 0.1 ounce/1000. Suggestions?

    we have used it to slow growing rates and for turf density, i think the rate you mentioned is too low

    no to chemigation.

    standard boom-type application methods are what I am referring to.
