Abstract/Contents:Announces a new disease of bentgrass documented in Connecticut on September 27, 1999. "It appears in August and September as small tan to reddish spots (dollar spot size) that may look like ball marks. It is caused by a foliar fungus that produces numerous dark fruiting bodies (pseudothecia) in the infected leaves. The proposed name of this new fungus is Ophiosphaerella agrostis, named for its bentgrass host." Suggests mowing practices to prevent the disease from spreading, as well as the use of thiophanate-methyl for treatment. "There is no offical name for this new disease yet."
