Abstract/Contents:Explains spring dead spot (SDS) which "is a major disease that affects bermudagrass in the United States and worldwide." Details the "three root-rooting fungi cause the disease: Ophiosphaerella herpotricha, Ophiosphaerella korrae, and Ophiosphaerella narmari. Discusses common symptoms of SDS and bermudagrass varieties that have shown resistance, along with some control measures. Discusses the possibility of using biocontrol methods in stopping SDS. Provides the basic biology behind the infection process and the importance of "better understanding of the infection mechanism at the molecular level [which] could lead to novel and improved control methods." Comments that "as we advance into the future, it is our hope that research supported by the USGA will ultimately bring to producers and users improved turfgrasses, management procedures, and biotechnological and microbiological tools to make SDS a subject of history."
