Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to evaluate fungicides as possible methods for controlling red thread (Laetisaria fuciformis) in Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis). Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "this test was conducted in 2002...on a stand of Kentucky bluegrass established in 1972. Mowing height was 3.5" [inches], and the clippings were returned to the plots...There was little disease activity in early spring. At the end of May, a sudden, severe, and uniform outbreak of red thread occured in this area from natural inoculum." Lists treatments evaluated in the study, including Insignia 20WG 0.5 ounces (oz), Insignia 20WG 0.9 oz, BASF 50503 50WG 0.2 oz, Cuprofix MZ30 42DF 6.0 oz, Bayleton 50DF 0.5 oz, Heritage 50WP 0.4 oz, Bayleton 50DF 1.0 oz, and Endorse 2.5WP 4.0 oz. Reports that "the disease period was rather short so only a single application of products was made. All treatments demonstrated significant disease reduction within 10 days after application...No phytotoxicity, growth regulator, or other color effects were noted on the turf."
