Abstract/Contents:"Between 1990 and 1993, studies were conducted, with funding from Farming for the Future, to evaluate fungicides and surfactants for the control of fairy ring. In 1994 a new study was initiated to evaluate the organosilicone surfactant Sylgard, applied as a drench or through injection, to control fairy rings on a golf course...In general, there was no difference between the two surfactants. There was an extremely strong relationship between surfactant concentration and plant injury, with much more plant injury occurring at the higher dose. There was a strong tendency for grass production to increase with increasing surfactant concentration, although the lower concentration was nearly as effective as the higher. In contrast, the lower concentration resulted in greater grass cover than the higher concentration...Throughout the summer measurements were made on turf area cover (National Turfgrass Evalaution Program standard rating system), phytotoxicity of the treatment using the ECW Western Canada Section rating system, soil moisture content, thatch levels and the presence of distincitve M. oreades mycelium. There were no significant differences between the treatments for any of the variables measured."
