USGA Summary Points:Bacterial wilt of bentgrass is caused by Acidovorax avenae (presumably variety avenae) and is widely distributed throughout the United States, where it causes a wilt and decline of creeping bentgrass. The pathogen can attack any variety of creeping bentgrass but does appear to be more aggressive on selected clones when it occurs in the field. The pathogen does not attack annual bluegrass or other turf type grasses. Disease is highly dependent upon prevailing weather conditions and health of the turf. Highly stressed turf under high temperature is most likely to see damage. Growth chamber trials are of limited utility because the turf is under few stresses and often grows out of the disease quickly. Daconil Action is highly effective at limiting disease symptoms when applied preventatively, and Primo Maxx does not appear to increase disease symptoms.
