THE INFLUENCE OF NITROGEN AND MALEIC HYDRAZIDE (MH-30) ON THE GROWTH AND CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF WILMINGTON BAHIAGRASS (PASPALUM NOTATUM FLUGGE). A SPECIAL STUDY OF SELECTION, ESTABLISHMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF VEGETATION FOR EROSION CONTROL OF ROADSIDE AREAS IN GEORGIA.

A Wilmington bahiagrass sod was established from seed in June, 1970, with fertilization consisting of 1680 kg/ha of (N-P-K) and ground dolomitic limestone at two metric tons per hectare. A randomized complete block split-split plot design with three replications was used to study N rates of 0, 112, and 224 kg N/ha from ammonium nitrate and maleic hydrazide rates of 0, 4.5, 9.0, and 13.5 kg MH-30/ha. Split-split plot treatments were time of MH-30 application. Data collected were color ratings, plant height, seedhead and tiller counts, percent N and total nonstructural carbohydrate content.
