Abstract/Contents:Announces a study conducted at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, focusing on "the affect of wear on various Kentucky bluegrass varieties throughout the entire growing season, and specifically in spring, summer, and fall." States that "initial observations have shown that some Kentucky bluegrass varieties are very wear tolerant in both spring and summer months. Unfortunately, some of these wear-tolerant varieties are highly susceptible to dollar spot." Briefly provides information on dollar spot, as well as the methodology used in the study. Reports that "it appears that repeated turfgrass wear is keeping dollar spot severity in-check and potentially nullifying the need for fungicide application in worn plots," adding that this data may be used as an argument for maintaining frequent mowing intervals.
