Abstract/Contents:"Plots were located on a Manhattan ryegrass turf established Sep 1985 at the University of Nebraska John Seaton Anderson Turfgrass Research Facility, Mead, NE. The experimental area was inoculated late May with Rhizoctonia solani cultured on sterilized oat seed. The inoculum was applied with a 4-ft Gandy drop spreader calibrated to deliver 10 lb oat inoculum per 1000 sq...on 25 May and 21 Jun...Each treatment was replicated three times in a randomized complete block design...Brown patch developed rapidly during Jun and early Jul but slowed due to cooler weather and was only moderately severe by mid-Aug. By mid-Jul most fungicide treatments were showing significantly less brown patch than the untreated control. All fungicide treatments significantly held the disease in check by mid-Aug; however, disease development in the untreated plots also showed a slight decrease in severity, probably due to the onset of cooler temperatures and less humidity."
