Abstract/Contents:"Although the commercial success of biological control of turfgrass diseases has not yet been realized, considerable information is available on the use of various microbes for the control of a variety of turfgrass diseases. Effective microorganisms are found among the bacteria, fungi, and actinomycetes. Results have been largely from laboratory studies where efficacy can be comparable to standard turfgrass fungicides." Discusses specific goals and objectives of the project. "The goals of our work is to develop and optimize biological strategies for turfgrass disease control. Our approach was to evaluate promising microbial inoculants for the control of important turfgrass diseases and establish their compatibility with commonly-used turfgrass fungicides so that integrated approaches to disease control might be developed. The specific objectives of our project were to: 1) Evaluate known biological control organisms for the control of dollar spot, brown patch, and Pythium root rot diseases of creeping bentgrass turf; 2) Determine the compatibility of promising microbial inoculants with common turfgrass fungicides; and 3) Test the efficacy of microbe/fungicide mixtures for the control of turfgrass diseases. Promising bacterial biological control strains [Azospirillum brasiliense, Enterobacter cloacae, Enterobacter sp., Paenibacillus macerans, Pseudomonas aureofaciens, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas putida, and Serratia marcescens] were placed in field trials to evaluate their efficacy against dollar spot, brown patch, and Pythium root rot disease."
