Abstract/Contents:"'There is no need for anyone to have dollarspot on his greens.' This statement was made by Dr. H. W. Thurston, of the Pennsylvania State College, at the Mid-Atlantic Greenkeepers' Conference in Baltimore, January 15 and 16. Dr. Thurston cited a great deal of evidence to support the use of cadmium compounds for the control of dollarspot. Dollarspot control with these materials is cheaper than it is with mercury fungicides and the growth of grass is not checked, as is the case when inorganic mercury compounds are used. Except where dollarspot is very severe, infrequent applications keep the disease well in check. CRAG fungicide (experimental fungicide #531), an inorganic compound containing cadmium, has controlled dollarspot when applied once a month at the rate of 3 to 4 ounces to 1,000 square feet. Similar results have been obtained using Puratized 177, an organic cadmium fungicide. Both of these fungicides are available commercially. There is considerable evidence that adequate balanced fertilization is helpful in reducing dollarspot and in making fungicides more effective."
