Biological Control of Red Thread on Perennial Ryegrass

TurfDis13Eric B. Nelson and Cheryl Craft , Department of Plant Pathology , Cornell University, Ithaca NY, 1990

Of all the treatments evaluated, only Sustane (5-2-4) (poultry litter compost) was effective in suppressing red thread. A high level of suppression was observed at least 27 days after application. Diameter of infection centers was also reduced as compared with untreated plots and other compost treatments.

Necrotic Ring Spot Fungicide Studies

TurfDis12Hancock Research Center, East Lansing, MI, 1994

All fungicide and fertilizer treatments gave statistically significant reductions in disease, compared to the fertilized control. In this study, once again, the 1.b. N/1000 ft2 plots of Sustane, IBDU and Ringer Turf Restore exhibited superior density and overall turf quality.

Composted and Organic Fertilizers on Turf and Their Value in Reducing the Incidence of Turf Diseases and Insect Pests


Six composts derived from different organic sources, a dried sewage sludge (Milorganite), a commercially available organic amendment derived from sewage sludge for turfuse (Lawn Restore) and the fertilizer urea, were included in an expanded version of the 1988 trial at the URI Experiment Station Turfgrass Research Farm.

Suppression of Dollar Spot on Creeping Bentgrass and Annual Bluegrass Turf with Compost Amended Topdressings

TurfDis5ERIC B. NELSON, Assistant Professor, and CHERYL M. CRAFT, Research Support Specialist II, Department of Plant Pathology, New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University, 1992

Topdressings formulated with mixtures of sand and various composts or organic fertilizers (70:30, v/v) were applied to putting greens of creeping Bentgrass and annual bluegrass and evaluated for their ability to suppress dollar spot disease development.
