Abstract/Contents:Briefly describes a study "to test the ability of two Gaeumannomyces graminis isolates, one isolated from Agrostis capillaris and the other from Festuca rubra, to infect commercial varieties of Agrostis and Festuca varieties." States that "two isolates of G. graminis, one from Agrostis capillaris (GgA) and the other from Festuca rubra (GgF) were isolate by removing 1 cm lenghts of infected root material, washing them in 60% sodium hypochlorite, 70% ethanol, sterile water, and planting them onto half-strength potato dextrose agar (PDA). Each isolate was sub-cultured and incubated at 20¬įC +/- 2¬įC with 12 hours light and 12 hours darkness for 7 days until mycelial growth almost filled the petri-dish." Also states that turf quality assessments were made on a weekly basis; each plant was rated at the end of each experimental period on planth health, and plant roots were measured and examined microscopically for signs of disease. Results show that "GgA was pathogenic to all species except F. rubra commutata. Root development on incoulated plants was significantly less than untreated plants...[and] GgF was patheogenic to all species except F. rubra ssp. commutata and F. rubra ssp. rubra. Infected roots were less developed than those of non-inoculated plants." States that "further field trials would be required to determine the effect of GgA and GgF on different grass species under variable conditions."
