Abstract/Contents:"Psychrophilic turf grass pathogens are of major importance in Minnesota golf turf disease control programs. Typhula spp., Fusarium nivale are the generealy [generally] accepted dauses [causes] of snow mold on golf grenns [greens]. Surveys for snow mold organisms on golf greens since 1971 have found T. incarnate and T. ishikariensis to be the major causal agents. In 1974, '75, '76, Sclerotinia patch, Sclerotinia borealis was found on several golf courses in northern Minnesota. Since precise diagnostic techniques to determine the identity of snow mold organisms is difficult many superintendent reports are in error. Adequate snow mold control requires one to know what snow mold organisms are present and active. Research plots and field observations suggest that T. incarnata is the easiest to control while T. ishikariensis is not as easy to control. Further that S. borealis is not controlled by the fungicides that control Typhula spp. F. nivale, although present in Minnesota, has seldom been a problem in turf research plot areas. Additional unidentified low temperature fungi may also be involved in the snow mold complex. These studies indicate the need for better diagnostic techniques to recognize snow mold fungi and to evaluate each low temperature pathogen alone and in combination against known grass varieties with and without fungicides."
