Abstract/Contents:"Dollar spot caused by Sclerotinia homoeocarpa was officially documented in Norway in 20131 and in Sweden in 20142, and the disease exists on more than 20 Nordic golf courses. The damage from dollar spot in Scandinavia varies and can be up to 70-80% dead turf on greens and fairways. There are no available fungicides against dollar spot in the Nordic countries except for Sweden. According to EU-Directive 2009/128 EU on establishing a framework on sustainable use of pesticides, the management and control of any pests has to follow IPM (integrated pest management) principles. Regarding dollar spot, no research has been conducted in the Nordic environments on any control measures. Effective non-chemical measures for control of this disease are needed. From the previous studies in USA where dollar spot has been studied for at least 50 years, it is known that this disease is favoured by the combination of dry soil and a moist turf canopy3. Thus, daily rolling may significantly reduce dollar spot severity on golf greens due to it disperses concentrated guttation water4 and contribute to increase in soil moisture5. Positive effect of rolling has also been observed by Danish greenkeepers6. The objective of this study was to find the most efficient frequency for rolling on golf greens in Scandinavia, and the preliminary results from the first experimental year are presented in this paper."
