Abstract/Contents:Disscusses anthracnose (Colletoctrichum cereale), "a common disease of annual bluegrass." States that "insufficient nitgrogen fertilization is known to increase anthracnose severity on annual bluegrass greens. However, it is not known how other cultural practices used to manage green speed affect anthracnose severity." Suggests that "mowing frequency may reduce root mass and carbohydrate reserves and increase damage (wounding) to leaf tissue ehancing infection by C. cereale. Discusses a two-year study that began in 2004 in North Brunswick, New Jersey. Reports that "mowing height had the most pronounced effect on anthracnose throughout the study, frequently increasing disease severity at lower heights." Notes that "mowing frequency generally had little or no effect of anthracnose severity." States that "rolling every other day slightly reduced anthracnose severity (5% to 6%) under moderate disease pressure." Notes that "soil bulk density was low to moderate during the study...and was affected more often by mowing frequency than rolling or mowing height." Concludes that "anthracnose severity on annual bluegrass putting greens can be reduced by raising the mowing height as little as .015 inch."
