USGA Summary Points:"Adequate nitrogen fertility to sustain moderate growth of annual bluegrass from May through August (0.1 pound/1000 ft2 of N every 7 days) was the single most effective cultural practice that can reduce anthraconose disease." "Melfluidide (Embark) and ethephon (Proxy) growth regulators used to inhibit seedhead expression in the spring had an inconsistent and generally small effect on anthracnose over the four years of this research project. Repeat applications of trinexapac-ethyl (Primo MAXX) to regulate vegetative growth from spring through summer either had no effect or slightly decreased the severity of anthracnose." "Annual bluegrass putting green turf treated with a combination of seedhead (mefluidide or ethephon) and vegetative (trinexapac-ethyl) regulation typically had less anthracnose and better turf quality by July or August." "A lower height of cut intensified anthracnose severity, while double-cutting and rolling did not encourage the disease." "Verticutting to groom (0.125-inch depth) the leaf canopy without wounding crowns or stolons had little effect on disease severity."
