Compost management of brown patch disease in turfgrass



Compost management of brown patch disease in turfgrass



Acta Horticulturae (661): 487-489



Five Greek composts were evaluated for their suppressiveness against Rhizoctonia solani, an important soilborne pathogen causing brown patch disease of turfgrass. Two strains of R. solani belonging to anastomosis groups AG5 and AG2-2 IIIB were used to inoculate two turfgrass species (Lolium perenne 'Applaud' and Festuca arundinacea 'Tomahawk'). For AG5, percent disease ranged from 71.25 to 97.50 for L. perenne and 27.50 to 92.50 for F. arundinacea.
