Current research with biostimulants on turfgrass
Although the use of biostimulants on golf course turf has increased in recent years, minimal published research is available that describes their impacts on turfgrass. This presentation will examine previous and current biostimulant research not typically available to the public since most articles are published in scientific journals. Examples will focus on an array of biostimulant ingredients with emphasis placed on explaining their effects on turfgrass quality, root morphology, nutrient use efficiency, and stress tolerance.
