Abstract/Contents:1984 test to evaluate fungicides on plots of mature Lolium perenne for their ability to control red thread. The turf received minimal care and was maintained at a 2.0" cutting height. Fungicide treatments were applied to 6 X 10' plots in a randomized complete block design with 4 replications. A backpack sprayer with a 6' boom having 4 nozzles applied treatments at 25 psi delivering 2 gal/1000 ft2. Plots were treated 17 July, 30 July, and evaluated 13 Aug. "Warm, rainy weather favored disease development and the disease was already present when treatments were first made. Disease pressure was moderate and dead patches of turfgrass up to 7-8" in diameter appeared in untreated plots." A table with resuts shows that Bayleton and SN84364 each provided significant control of this disease.
