Abstract/Contents:Addresses concern over diseases in 1935 such as brown spot, dollar spot, fairy-ring and smokey fungus, mentioning that the Queensland Board is conducting an investigation into incidence and control. Describes brown spot as a fungal disease that causes small brown patches of dead grass which cause an uneven playing surface, and that it is difficult to eradicate. Mentions successful control by using copper carbonate, dusted over the greens one pound per 90 square yards. Presents an alternative treatment of using mercury bi-chloride by dissolving one half pound common salt in a gallon of water and adding one pound mercury bi-chloride, using one pint solution to 50 gallons of water for 1000 square feet. Notes that the Queensland Board has observed "excess shade predisposes the green to fungus attack."
