USGA Summary Points:Deficit irrigation (40% ETo) induced wilt stress and intensified anthracnose severity. Irrigation at 80% ETo often resulted in the lowest anthracnose severity and best turf quality. Lightweight rolling every other day with either roller type (i.e., sidewinder or triplex-mounted vibratory) effectively increased ball-roll distance and decreased anthracnose severity under moderate disease pressure. Adequate nitrogen fertility to sustain moderate growth was needed to reduce anthracnose severity. Nitrogen applied every 7 (0.1 lb per 1000 ft2) or 14 days (0.2 lb per 1000 ft2) provided the greatest reduction in anthracnose severity. Applications every 14 days at 0.1 lb per 1000 ft2 also reduced disease, but to a lesser extent. Sand topdressing initially increased anthracnose in 2007. Continued weekly applications of sand reduced anthracnose severity by August 2007 and throughout 2008. Sand topdressing reduced anthracnose severity regardless of foot traffic. Moreover, daily foot traffic decreased anthracnose severity. The combination of daily foot traffic with weekly sand topdressing resulted in the lowest disease severity and best turf quality in both 2007 and 2008.
