USGA Summary Points:Increasing N apparently contributes to disease escape due to more efficient generation of plant tissues and organs. N sources most likely affect soil pH and the suitability of the soil environment for pathogen development. Ammonium sulfate may reduce bermudagrass decline symptom development. Tifeagle bermudagrass recovery from bermudagrass decline symptoms was enhanced by aerification, heavy topdressing and aggressive fertilization with ammonium sulfate. Low light causes increased leaf and internode length in dwarf bermudagrasses, but temperature regulates expression of dwarf growth habit. The alterations in growth form in Tifdwarf bermudagrass caused by low light and cooler temperatures justifies raising the mowing height to reduce mowing stress that contributes to bermudagrass decline severity.
