Abstract/Contents:"Nigrospora sp. appear to be weakly pathogenic under environmental conditions favoring growth and development of St. Augustinegrass. High temperatures and desiccation of exposed stolons in thin stands of poorly developed turf probably contribute to greater pathogenic activity by the fungus during the summer. Increasing the cutting height on stands of St. Augustinegrass and supplying adequate moisture and fertility to sustain a green leaf canopy over the stolons appear to greatly reduce the incidence of the disease."
