Abstract/Contents:"Microdochium patch, caused by Microdochium nivale (Fr.) Samuels & I.C. Hallett, is the economically most important disease on golf greens in the Nordic countries1,2. Traditionally, the last seasonal nitrogen (N) fertilization on golf greens is carried out in September- October3 since later N inputs will stimulate growth and tissue hydration, reduce carbohydrate reserves, and thus, reduce turfgrass winter hardiness4,5. The severity of microdochium patch has also been reported to increase with increasing N rate in autumn6. However, recent studies7,8 and new understanding of turfgrass stress physiology suggest that sufficient availability of N in the autumn will improve the winter survival and spring performance of grasses that are genetically adapted to a cold climate9,10. The objective of this study was to investigate how N affects turfgrass ability to resist microdochium patch, and to provide recommendations about optimal autumn fertilization of golf greens."
