Abstract/Contents:"Nematode populations in four bowling greens were monitored over a twelve months period after treatment with a turf nematicide (fenamiphos). Two grass species were studied, Agrostis sp. and Cynodon sp. and corresponding climates (i.e. Agrostis in the temperate south and Cynodon in the warmer north of the state). The main nematode species extracted from soil samples were the spiral (Helicotylenchus) and stubby root (Paratrichodorus). The spiral nematode and Tylenchus were the most frequently extracted nematodes from the roots. In the Agrostis sites the following genera; Meloidogyne, Pratylenchus and Paratrichodorus reached damaging levels, while in the Cynodon sites, Heliocotylenchus, Hemicycliphora, Paratrichodorus and Rotylenchus reached damaging levels. None of the greens in this study displayed advanced symptoms of nematode damage. Regardless of the region or the grass species, low level infestations of nematodes affected root health but not turf quality. Treatment with a nematicide resulted in a visual enhancement of root growth. The application of the nematicide fenamiphos was effective in reducing the numbers of nematodes in the following genera; Helicotylenchus, Xiphinema, Hemicycliophora, and Paratrichodorus in roots and soil. It did not appear to control Meloidogyne or Pratylenchus established inside the root system but did give some control of this nematode in the soil. Threshold levels were developed for several nematode species and when used in conjuction with an assessment of the root condition and turf vigour will assist in determining if an application of a nematicide is required."
