Abstract/Contents:"A study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of two compost products, one inoculated with microorganisms, and a conventional dairy manure compost without microbial inoculation on Necrotic Ringspot disease suppression, thatch reduction, and the improvement of turfgrass color and quality. Two Kentucky bluegrass home lawns infected with necrotic ringspot (NRS) disease were chosen for the study. Treatments were applied twice during a growing season after all plots were aerated., Treatments were i. microorganism inoculated compost topdressing 66 m3 ha-1, ii. conventional dairy manure topdressing 66 m3 ha-1, iii. Urea fertilizer at 49 kg N ha-1 and iv. a control (no fertilizer or compost applied). Data was collected biweekly from the May through October for 2 years, and included i. percentage of disease-affected turf, ii. turfgrass color, and iii. overall turfgrass quality. Thatch depth was measured monthly. The inoculated and conventional compost treated plots had less disease than the control. Season-long averages showed that the plots treated with the both compost products had better color and turf quality than the control. This study demonstrated that compost decreased NRS incidence and improved turf color and quality. Thatch depth in plots that received inoculated compost was less that plots that received conventional compost and fertilizer."
