Abstract/Contents:Details the widespread infestation of brown patch fungal disease on Australian golf greens, home lawns, and other cultivated turf in 1935. States that brown patch "is not confined to Australia, it is a prevalent turf problem in America and Great Britain where considerable research is being conducted regarding its prevention and control." Provides a thorough analysis of the disease, including a physical description, causes and length of infestation, turf conditions which favor infestation, and recommended cultural practices for disease control. Discusses how the disease is spread, which grasses are most susceptible, and how to recognize and eradicate the fungus including fertilization, topdressing, irrigation, and mowing practices.
