Abstract/Contents:"Applying a fungicide after turf has been damaged significantly is generally a waste of time, money and effort. Preventative applications are more economical and environmentally wise, says Peter Dernoeden, University of Maryland Agronomist. He says many turf diseases are effectively controlled with curative fungicide applications when disease symptoms first appear. Once a disease has severely reduced a turf's stand density, he recommends fall overseeding with resistant varieties instead of using fungicides. Contact fungicides are less expensive and provide good control, Dernoeden says. However, these fungicides may provide only 7-14 days of control under high-disease pressure conditions. Where sudden and severe or chronic disease problems occur, a systemic alone or a systemic plus contact may be needed. Systemic or local systemic fungicides will provide 14-21 days protection during high pressure disease periods. Tank mixing a systemic plus a contact fungicide provides a longer residual effect and a wider spectrum of control. Frequently fungicides may only be needed to help the turf better survive a high pressure disease."
