Abstract/Contents:Presents the results of "a fungicide test to control brown patch in tall fescue lawns...to determine the best products and timing of application for control of this disease." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the [research] plots were located on irrigated 'Millennium' tall fescue that was growing in full sun and was approximately 2 years old (planted fall 1998). There were 12 fungicide treatments in the trial. The experimental design was a randomized complete block with four replications." Lists treatments evaluated in the study, including Heritage, Immunox, Bayleton, Daconil, Scotts Thiophanate M., and LSD. Reports that "brown patch symptoms were first noticed on 12 July and increased slowly, but the control plots were approximately 60% infected by brown patch by 31 [August]...Treatments applied after symptoms developed generally were more effective than treatments applied before symptoms, but Immunox treatments were similar with both timings." Concludes that "a single application of Heritage on 1 June provided good control of brown patch through mid August and may be an effective means of suppressing this disease in tall fescue lawns. In addition, a single application of Heritage after symptoms occurred was also an effective treatment, giving the homeowner an option that is dependent on the presence of the disease."
