Abstract/Contents:"Turf diseases present a major management problem on golf courses worldwide and fungicides offer the only reliable, effective means of control at the present time. The likelihood for their replacement by cultural or biological control methods seems unlikely in the near future. Cultural practices that influence disease incidence and severity are well known to professional turf managers and are already integrated into their management programs. Biological agents for turf disease control await commercial exploitation. Increased world interest will result in many more golf courses and an increased demand for fungicides. Additional fungicides of new chemistry, environmentally friendly, and of low mammalian toxicity are needed to address current concerns and supplement our now dwindling arsenal."
