Abstract/Contents:Focuses on the use of cultural practices to reduce the occurrence of disease in turfgrass, explaining that "virtually everything a turf manager does can affect disease development." Overviews nitrogen fertility, compaction, thatch, moisture levels, and mowing height, summarizing the implications of improper management for each. Suggests that the "careful selection of the nitrogen source can help reduce symptom severity," and adds that "most stress related diseases are intensified by compaction." Mentions that "many diseases are more severe at lower mowing heights," and recommends maintaining turf at its proper mowing height to lower disease severity.
