The turf (100% Kentucky bluegrass) was maintained at a ht of 2.5 inches. Thatch accumulation (finger compressed) in the plot area was 0.5 inch. Field conditions at the site were: soil type, silty clay loam; soil organic matter, 3.0-5.0%; soil pH, 6.2-6.6; water pH, 7.0. Environmental conditions at the time of treatment were as follows: soil moisture 13.2%; air temp 72ºF; soil temp 60ºF; relative humidity 39%; and wind velocity, 5 mph. Plots were 5 ft x 5 ft and the experimental design was a RCB with four replications. Insecticides were applied on 16 May. Granule insecticides were applied using a hand shaker. Post-treatment irrigation was 0.25 inch. A total of 9.2 inches of rain accumulated during the post-treatment period.
