Abstract/Contents:Profiles yellow tuft (Sclerophthora macrospora), noting that it "can be a nuisance disease in all turfgrass species." States that "control methods, are often curative; that is, they are implemented after disease symptoms are present." Describes possible symptoms of the disease, stating that "the symptoms of yellow tuft are distinctive, and infections are more numerous in low, poorly drained areas because water is necessary for the swimming spores to be distributed." Discusses four field trials that "were conducted in Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania from 2004 through 2008, assesing various labeled and unlabeled fungicides for their impact on curative (that is, post-plant infection) yellow tuft control in creeping bentgrass." States that "no fungicide treatment provided complete curative control of yellow tuft in any of the four study years." Reports that "results from all sites and years indicated that the most consistant curative yellow tuft control was achieved with multiple applications of Subdue Maxx."
