Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the effects of vertical mowing and mowing height on the severity of antracnose basal rot in a mixed stand of creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "before the experiment, the experimental turf site was maintained as a putting green, mowed six times per week with a triplex greens mower at a mowing height of 0.125 inch (3.2 millimeters)...Two cultural practices common on putting greens, mowing and vertical mowing, were evaluated for their impact on the development of anthracnose basal rot disease on putting greens in 2002 and 2003. The experimental design was a factorial with a strip-plot design with four replications of treatments...the turf in the experimental area was inocculated with Colletotricum cereale, which was originally isolated from symptomatic annual bluegrass turf." Reports that "an assessment of basal rot antracnose three weeks after innoculation indicated that mowing height and vertical mowing both influenced the development of basal rot anthracnose in annual bluegrass." Concludes that "decreased mowing height and increased depth of vertical mowing increased the development of basal rot antracnose in annual bluegrass in a mixed-annual bluegrass and creeping bentgrass green...A turfgrass management strategy focusing on proper timing of cultural practices that minimize plant injury is desirable...Employing cultural practices that minimize mechanical injury and reduce disease severity will be instrumental in developing an integrated basal rot anthracnose management strategy."
