Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the effects of aeration, verticutting, and sand topdressing on large patch and investigate the biology of the interaction of cultural practices and disease." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "there were no differences in thatch-level temperature between cultivated and non-cultivated plots. Water content was slightly lower in the cultivated plots."

USGA Summary Points:Increase of patch size was highest in non-cultivated plots with spring+fall fertility. Water content was lower in cultivated plots, possibly reducing disease severity. Growth chamber work indicates some variation in susceptibility. Experiments will be repeated and compared with field studies. Differences in disease control were observed with different fungicide application timings.
