Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the effects of rate and source of nitrogen application on the severity of anthracnose basal rot on a mixed creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass green." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the experiment was conducted in 2005 and 2006 on two different sites...The turf was a mixed sward of Penncross creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris Huds.) and annual bluegrass (Poa annua L.) maintained as a green mowed at a 0.125-inch (3.2-millimeter) height six times per week." States that in the 2005 "experiment, [researchers] used three sources of nitrogen: urea (46-0-0), methylene urea (26-0-0) and IBDU (30-0-0)...The turf in the experimental area was inoculated with Colletotricum cereale, which was originally isolated from symptomatic annual bluegrass turf." Describes an experiment conducted in 2006. Reports that "stuides in 2005 and 2006 provided similar results. The results indicate that source of nitrogen and application rate are important factors influencing anthracnose basal rot development." Concludes that "development of basal rot anthracnose in annual bluegrass in a mixed annual bluegrass and creeping bentgrass green is influenced by nitrogen rate and source...Nitrogen source also appears to have no influence on basal rot development; however, the disease is more pronounced at the lower rate than at the medium or higher rate of nitrogen application."
