Plant Growth Regulators

The speaker, Ben Polimer, is fields and grounds coordinator, Town of Weston, Mass., and president of the New England Sports Turf Managers Association. Although this is archived content, we felt the information is more relevant than ever, as field managers are seeking information on how plant growth regulators might be used during these times of limited access to fields and reduced mowing schedules. This presentation also ties into Ben Polimer’s article in the May 2020 issue of SportsField Management magazine.
