Mepiquat chloride (MC) was a plant growth regulator of quarternary ammonium family acting on inhibiting gibberellin biosynthesis. This study was conducted to evaluate the inhibition effect of MC on the growth of creeping bentgrass (

Fig. 1. Clipping yield of creeping bentgrass after application of mepiquat chloride in pot experiment. RT: Reference trinexapac-ethyl; HM: Half dose of Mepiquat chloride (MC); RM: Recommendation dose of MC; DM: Double dose of MC. z Treatments were as follows; Control (non-treatment of plant growth regulator), RT (trinexapac ethyl [TE] 0.01 a.i.·g·m; 2,500 fold dilution), HM (MC 0.033 a.i.·g·m; 2,000 fold dilution), RM (MC 0.066 a.i.·g·m; 1,000 fold dilution), DM (MC 0.132 a.i.·g·m; 500 fold dilution). TE and MCs were applied on creeping bentgrass on June 11 in 2019. Error bars indicates standard deviation and different letters indicates significant different at ≤0.05 level according to Duncan’s multiple range test.
