Abstract (type = abstract)
Within the past several years, the utilization of thiamin in the growth of certain of the higher plants has, according to some investigators, resulted in marked increases in total dry matter produced by these plants. Further investigations have proven that thiamin is produced in the leaves of all green plants. Our knowledge concerning its specific function in plant responses is negligible at present.

Recent investigations indicate that the slow growing perennial species respond most markedly to additions of thiamin. The important fast-growing annual crop plants such as corn, wheat, and tomatoes do not seem to respond at all to added thiamin. It is the purpose of these experiments to demonstrate the effect of thiamin supplements to perennial forage and turf species. Some of the species studied are rapid in their growth and sod forming action whereas others require several years to produce a mature, healthy turf. It is further proposed to clarify our knowledge regarding the influence which applications of thiamin and of natural and artificial fertilizers have on the thiamin content of these turf and forage species.
