USGA Summary Points:The fungal endophyte (Epichloƫ festucae) that infects strong creeping red fescue produces an abundant antifungal protein that is not found in most Epichloƫ species. Our research indicates that it is involved in the dollar spot resistance observed in endophyteinfected strong creeping red fescue. Foliar application of the purified E. festucae antifungal protein to endophyte-free strong creeping red fescue plants and creeping bentgrass plants protected them from severe dollar spot symptoms caused by Clarireedia jacksonii, the dollar spot pathogen. The purified E. festucae antifungal protein also had activity in culture against other important plant pathogenic fungi. It may be possible to develop the antifungal protein as a complement biofungicide or alternative to synthetic fungicides used in crop protection from disease.
