Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted to develop a disease control program for annual bluegrass. Profiles annual bluegrass, stating that it "has two primary subspecies" an annual biotype (P. annua var. annua) and a perennial biotype (P. annua var. reptans)." Lists potential factors that contribute to disease, including mowing, fertilization and seedhead control. Suggests that "a useful method for developing a spray program is to map it out on paper...[and] can be done by drawing a row of 12 boxes, one for each month of the year, and labeling them by month." Discusses diseases that can infect annual bluegrass, including Basal rot anthracnose, summer patch, dollar spot, brown patch, and pythium blight. States that "the first step in developing the actual greens spray program is to select fungicides that control anthracnose and summer patch...Because anthracnose is the primary target, select as many fungicides as possible that have activity against this disease and others." Concludes that "each golf course is different, and no program is perfect for all."
