Abstract/Contents:"A technique was developed to evaluate potential bioantagonists against Pythium and Rhizoctonia diseases on turf. 'Penncross' bentgrass was grown in 288-plug plastic trays. Fourteen grass plugs were planted, evenly-spaced, in 13 × 17.5 × 6 cm plastic pans of pasteurized soil. Grain infested with Rhizoctonia solani or Pythium aphanidermatum was placed in a center hole in the soil, a grass plug was planted in the hole, and the infested grain was incorporated in the soil prior to planting the plugs, or were sprayed on the plugs after planting. Treatments were evaluated by counting the number of dead and symptomatic grass plugs. For example, in pans inoculated with R. solani, 80% of the plugs survived when sprayed with conidia of a Trichoderma sp. compared to none of the unsprayed plugs."
