Abstract/Contents:"Broadleaf plantain and prostrate knotweed are important weeds of turfgrass systems. The fungus Sclerotinia minor Jagger (IMI 344141) has been registered as a biological herbicide (SarritorTM) for dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) in Canadian turfgrass habitats. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of plant age and turfgrass environment on the efficacy of S. minor against two additional weeds; broadleaf plantain and prostrate knotweed. The turfgrass environment alone exerted significant reduction of above and below ground biomass of broadleaf plantain, to the same magnitude as the S. minor treatment in a grass-free environment. Prostrate knotweed biomass, however, was not reduced to this extent by competition with turfgrass. In the presence of grass, S. minor caused a significant biocontrol effect on all studied variables with more than 90% above ground damage on both weed species. Severe damage occurred on 3-6-week-old plantains with 100% above and below ground reduction, although smaller dry weight reductions were observed on older plantains. Treatment with S. minor reduced the dry matter of 3-5-week-old prostrate knotweed by 65-85%, but less damage occurred on older prostrate knotweed. The bioherbicide fungus is destructive for both species, but variation in area of contact due to different growth forms, growth rates and resource allocation patterns due to different life forms resulted in different biocontrol efficacy on the two species. Control of broadleaf plantain was effective - similar to that previously reported for dandelion - but control of prostrate knotweed was only partial."
