Abstract/Contents:"A survey was carried out on several golf courses in Northern Italy, to evaluate the main diseases and insects on turfgrass. Dollar spot (Sclerotinia homoeocarpa F.T. Bennett), pink snow mould (Microdochium nivale (Fries) Samuels and Hallett) and brown patch (Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn) are the diseases most frequently observed in such conditions. The main insect problems were caused by cutworms (Agrotis ipsilon Hufnagel and Agrotis segetum Demis & Schiffer├╝ller), billbug (Sphenophorus striatopunctatus Goeze) and white grubs (Melolontha melolontha L., Amphimallon solstitialis L. and Rhizotrogus aestivus Olivier). The control strategies, based on chemicals, coupled with good cultural practices, are particularly difficult due to the scarcity of fungicides and insecticides registered for turf in Italy."
