Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of Pasteuria endospores to reduce sting nematode populations on turfgrass, suggesting that "for superintendents, biological control of sting nematodes may offer an alternative or supplemental management tactic in addition to chemical nematicides." Presents multiple greenhouse studies conducted to determine the effects of application rate, thatch presence, soil moisture, and Pasteuria isolates on overall nematode control, suggesting that "we have no reason to believe that Pasteuria produced in vitro will be less effective against sting nematode populations in some regions than in others." Also provides data collected from several field trials conducted "to evaluate the efficacy of different formulations, application methods, rates, and timings of artificially produced Pasteuria for control of sting nematodes on turf." Details methods and materials used for each greenhouse study and field trial conducted, and includes several charts and graphs illustrating their results. Reports that "the greenhouse experiments clearly show that the Pasteuria bacterium in EcoNem is an effective parasite of sting nematode. Nematode suppression occurred when endospore numbers in soil were 4,588,0000/cubic inch (280,000/cubic centimeter) of soil." Mentions that "[the] field trials were unsuccessful in reducing numbers of sting nematode or improving turf health." Highlights potential differences among the trials and studies, and concludes that "research and development of improved formulations and new Pasteuria products is ongoing."
