USGA Summary Points:Clemson University researchers have determined that labyrinthula grow best invitro at a range between 22┬░ - 26┬░C and at relatively wide range of salinity levels from 3.5 - 10.5 dS/m. Results from experiments to evaluate 49 different cool-season turfgrass species for their relative tolerance to the disease indicate that the grass species most tolerant to rapid blight are certain fescues, creeping bentgrasses, and alkaligrasses, while annual and rough bluegrasses, other bentgrasses, and most ryegrasses are quite susceptible. Researchers report progress on a nationwide Rapid Blight - Disease, Water, and Soil Survey, with assistance of USGA agronomists, to gather vital information on soil and water salinity and the environmental conditions associated with disease outbreaks. Molecular studies of Labyrinthula isolates confirm their genetic identity and support previous morphological characterization of the rapid blight pathogen. Extensive greenhouse fungicide screenings show that Insignia, Compass, Fore, and tank mix combinations of Fore and Insignia or Compass are the most efficacious treatments for rapid blight control.
