Abstract/Contents:"Composts and biological control organisms (BCOs) are touted as methods to reduce disease severity in the absence of synthetic fungicides. However, neither provides control on their own to the same degree as synthetic fungicides. A multi-year field study was established on a creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L. cv. "007") fairway to evaluate combinations of compost topdressing and BCO applications for improved BCO establishment and suppression of foliar pathogens. A split-plot design evaluated main plots [i.e., biochar+compost topdressing (MG) vs none] arranged in a randomized complete block design with subplots [BCO application intervals (Bacillus subtilis QST713 14 d, 7 d, and none)]. Turfgrass quality and disease severity were rated every 7 - 14 d throughout the growing season and summarized as area under the progress curve values for analysis. Foliage samples were collected monthly to monitor BCO populations utilizing an established qPCR assay. There was no interaction between MD and BCO applications, but individual treatments provided measurable benefits that the other did not. Monthly MG topdressing improved turfgrass quality in both years of the study. Additionally, monthly MG topdressing reduced brown patch severity in 2020 and dollar spot severity in 2021. Weekly BCO applications reduced copper spot compared to the non-treated control, which coincided with the highest BCO population levels measured in the qPCR analysis. These data highlight the need to use multiple approaches when managing diseases in the absence of synthetic fungicides. Furthermore, BCO applications need to be made frequently (i.e., 7 d intervals) to have the best chance for success."
