This investigation was carried out at Experimental Farm and laboratory of the Vegetable and Ornamental Plants Dept., Faculty of Agriculture, Mansoura Univ., Egypt to examine influence of CCC and PBZ as chemical mowers on Lolium perenne L turf grass under different concentrations individually or in combinations. Results cleared that CCC or PBZ reduced ryegrass tillers length comparing with the control one especially with the higher concentrations. Also, the highest fresh and dry weight of ryegrass tillers recorded when 200 mg/L CCC was foliar sprayed. In addition, the highest total sugar and proline % was tabulated for the interaction between 300 mg/L CCC + 50 mg/L PBZ treatment. Generally, all the plant growth retardants (CCC or PBZ individually and in combinations) increased the pigments content (total chlorophyll and carotenoids) than the control.
