Abstract/Contents:Presents a study with the following objectives: "1. Determine the distribution of the three pathogens (Ophiosphaerella herpotricha, O. korrae, and Leptosphaeria narmari) associated with spring dead spot on bermudagrass. 2. Test the aggressiveness of each of the three spring dead spot pathogens in field tests at Manhattan and Wichita, KS, and Stillwater, OK. 3. Develop techniques to rapidly screen bermudagrass selections for resistance. 4. Monitor development of spring dead spot fungi on bermudagrass roots during the growing season in order to better understand the seasonal colonization and more accurately time fungicide applications." States that "field trials in Oklahoma indicated that several bermudagrass entries including Guymon, Sundevil, Midlawn, Midfield, Ft. Reno, and Mirage and OKS 91-11 were more resistant to spring dead spot." Also, "preliminary evidence suggests that O. herpotrica results in larger dead spots and more shoot kill within the spots than the other spring dead spot pathogens." Results also indicate that "aggressive summer aerification accompanied by fungicide and growth regulator treatments will reduce, but not eliminate symptoms of spring dead spot." This study began in 1998.
