Abstract/Contents:Profiles spring dead spot and its effect on bermudagrass. "Cultivars of bermudagrass with greater winter hardiness such as 'Midiron,' 'Midfield,' and 'Vamont' tend to be less susceptible and generally recover more rapidly from SDS. 'Tufcote' and most bermudagrass hybrids (Cynodon dactylon X C. transvaalensis) are very susceptible to this disease." Recommends several approaches to control SDS, including acidification, avoidance of nitrate forms of nitrogen, higher cutting heights, and fungicide applications.
