Abstract/Contents:"It should be recongnized [recognized] that healthy turf is very important to our golf courses, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, home lawns, and other areas in Oklahoma. After following a good maintenance program many superintendents find it difficult to maintain that can withstand environmental stresses and heavy traffic. When a close look is taken, nematodes and soil fungi are often at the 'Root of the problem' limiting growth and a healthy stand of grass. Nematode control studies in recent years have shown that the soil fumigants and non-fumigants will reduce the nematode populations to a level that will aid growth of the grass. Examination of roots and other underground plant parts in these studies and specimens collected from golf greens, tee boxes, athletic fields, home lawns, and othter [other]turf areas, not only reveal nematode injury but show severe root rot damage associated with the heavy nematode populations. These findings have stimulated a program in search of a chemical, or chemical combination that will effectively control this soil disease complex and aid in maintaining healthier stands of grass. The results of three trials are diseassed [discussed]: Study I. Influence of a Soil-fungicide and nematicide on an established bentgrass, Agrostis palustris Huds., nursery. The application of a fungicide and a nematicide alone or in a combination together at two times during the growing season proved to be successful and increased considerably to the density of the sward depending on the time of application. Study II. Effect of two nematicides and a soil fungicide on six bermudagrass, Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers., varieties. The nematicides reduced the nematode population considerable especially on the dethatched area. The combination with a fungicide produced twice as much grass clippings, no difference in dippings was shown when this chemical was applied alone. Study III. Effect of high rates of PCNB-Terrazole on a bermudagrass, Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers., lawn infected with Spring Dead Spot. The highest rate of 10 qts. per 1000 square feet proved to be the most successful with regard to the weight of clippings and in the rating for Dollar Spot Disease."
