Abstract/Contents:Announces the development of a new fungicide for brown patch and large patch control called polyoxin D (EndorseĀ®) and gives advice for controlling brown and large patch. States that "polyoxin prevents normal cell wall synthesis in sensitive fungi by blocking chitin production. It has no known adverse effects on other microorganisms that do not have chitin in their cell walls, such as bacteria and yeasts. Hence, although it is an antibiotic it is not likely to control bacterial wilt (Xanthomonas campestris). There is no toxicity to livestock or plants, but it is considered mildly toxic to aquatic invertebrates and fish." Concludes that "the best cultural practices for managing brown patch in cool-season grasses include the following: apply balanced N + P + K fertilizers in the autumn using as much slow-release N as possible; irrigate early in the morning; avoid excessive and/or nighttime irrigation; and maintain the mowing height high within the recommended range for the species grown. If possible, improve drainage and air ciculation, reduce thatch, and alleviate soil compaction."
