Abstract/Contents:Discusses potential advantages and disadvantages to covering turf with manure during the winter. States that "tests by the [United States Golf Association] Green Section staff some years ago demonstrated the ineffectiveness of a covering of straw or other material in controlling snowmold [snow mold]. A covering of manure has somewhat the same effect as straw." Suggests the use of "calomel or corrosive sublimate at rates from 2 to 4 ounces to the thousand square feet. This should be applied in the late fall or early winter...In [a] climate where [there is] frequent thaws during the winter months...it is wise to apply...mercury fungicide in several small doeses rather than in one heavy application, which is effective elsewhere through the snowmold [snow mold] belt."
