Abstract/Contents:1984 test of tolerance of fine fescues to dollar spot. 48 Cultivars of fine fescues including hard, creeping red, chewings, and sheep fescues were seeded into randomized 4' X 6' blocks with 3 replications and received conventional care and a 2" cutting height. A table provides % turfgrass killed by dollar spot (caused by the fungus Sclerotinia homeocarpa, now regarded as Lanzia or Moellerodiscus spp.) from combined averages from disease ratings made on 17 July, 1 Aug, and 15 Aug. Damage from dry weather was evident, but disease pressure was high based on fungal mycelia present in early mornings. Scaldis, 4LS, and 430 had least turf killed by dollar spot. There were significant differences among replicates and among varieties.
