Abstract/Contents:Profiles several turfgrass diseases and fungicides potentially used to control them. States that "the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency]...approved Disarm 480SC, a...strobilurin (QoI) fungicide used on turf" and that the active ingredient "is very effective against a broad range of diseases including anthracnose, brown patch, gray leaf spot, pythium blight and summer patch." Discusses a proposed ban on PCNB, a fungicide used for the disease pink snow mold and suggests that "to prevent pink snow mold from developing on susceptible turf...avoid excessive nitrogen applications, continue mowing turf until dormancy" and to apply a suitable fungicide. Discusses Stripe Smut which is "apparent on susceptible Kentucky bluegrass varieties" and for which "one well-timed application of an appropriate fungicide...will provide excellent control." Also discusses the disease take-all patch which "has been reported on several bentgrass greens and fairways" and has been controlled "through the use of acidfying fertilizers... during cool weather" and preventitive applications of fungicide in October and November.
