Abstract/Contents:"Plant disease control has centred primarily on agrochemical application either as preventative or curative treatments. The application of large quantities of fungicides, the associated costs, and the danger of developing resistance, the possible human health risks and the environmental damage associated with their use has encouraged researchers to develop alternative methods for disease control. Fusarium patch (Microdochium nivale) has been identified as the most damaging, disfiguring disease of fine turf in Western Europe. It can develop rapidly under very favourable weather conditions and if left untreated can decimate golf greens within days. European Union legislation has resulted in a major reduction in pesticide availability and proposes to further reduce or even prohibit the use of chemicals to control turfgrass diseases. Thus, there is a greater need to develop complementary and cultural control methods. An experiment using 12 cm diameter grass cores were inoculated with Fusarium patch disease that had been sourced from Mountrath golf course and cultured in the laboratory was conducted in autumn 2010 to establish if three different organic composts derived from three different waste streams influenced the establishment, progression and control of the disease. The results showed that the inoculation of some of the treatments did not adversely affect grass yield. It was also established that turf which was inoculated following topdressing produced a higher grass colour score compared with treatments topdressed prior to inoculation. Despite this, disease incidence in all the treatments was over 80% indicating limited suppression but little or no preventative capability by the materials."
