Abstract/Contents:Profiles blue-green algae, stating that "superintendents are finding blue-green algae encroachment on creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) putting greens an all too common problem." Explains that "excessive organic matter and moisture in the upper layers of the rootzone, accompanied with cultural and environmental stresses, make golf greens and excellent growing medium for blue-green algae, various fungi and micro-flora." States that "blue-green algae are known to cause two distinct problems on putting greens: surface slime mats and subsurface black layers." Discusses potential causes of blue-green algae encroachment, including persistent wet conditions. Also discusses potential cultural and chemical control options. Emphasizes that "Chemical control should always be secondary to alleviating enrivonmental and cultural factors contributing to blue-green algae encorachment."
