Abstract/Contents:"An evaluation of fungicide treatments for control of Rhizoctonia blight (Rhizoctonia solani) was carried out at the Landscape Management Research Center, University Park, PA, on a mixed stand of Apache, Bonanza, Cimarron, and Olympic tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea), maintained under home lawn management conditions. The test area was fertilized on 17 May with 1.0 lb actual N (urea 46-0-0) per 1000 sq ft. Individual plots, 3 ft x 15 ft, were arranged in a randomized complete block design with three replications. Treatments were applied with a CO2-powered boom sprayer, using T-jet 8004 nozzles, at 30 psi, in water equivalent to 2 gal per 1000 sq ft. Applications were made 31 May, 13 and 26 June, 11 and 24 Jul, and 6 Aug, except as noted in the table. Brown patch severity was visually evaluated on 29 Jul. Data obtained were subjected to analysis of variance and Duncan's Multiple Range test. Disease pressure was uniform over the experimental area, with little rep-to-rep variation in disease severity. The majority of the products evaluated provided good suppression of Rhizoctonia blight during the one disease outbreak that occurred during the testing period."
