Abstract/Contents:"Disease management represents a significant challenge for turfgrass managers. This is made particularly demanding by the perennial nature of turfgrass plantings as well as that of the disease-causing organisms. Since most, if not all, of the fungal pathogens of turfgrass are always present in turfgrass plantings, rarely is the pathogen's presence or population level limiting for disease development...One of the more exciting alternative management strategies being developed is the use of biological controls in which individual or mixtures of antagonistic microorganisms (also call 'antagonists') are deployed to reduce either the activities of pathogens or enhance the tolerance of plants to disease. This approach to disease control has been used successfully on an experimental as well as a commercial basis for the control of plant pathogens on several crop plant species and has recently seen applications in the turfgrass industry."
