Abstract/Contents:Discusses the emergence of Acidovorax avenae subsp. avenae onto creeping bentgrass putting greens around the country. States that "the pathogen was identified by the Michigan State University (MSU) turfgrass diagnostic lab in 2009, and has been isolated out of over 40 additional samples from around the U.S. [United States] since." Explains different studies that have been performed on the bacterium to determine its effects on various turf cultivars. Mentions that Oxytetracycline is the only antibiotic thus far to show any significant control of Acidovorax avenae on creeping bentgrass in a controlled environment. Describes field work being performed for advancements in disease control.
