Comparison of light-frequent, heavy-infrequent, and alternating applications of fungicides to control Fusarium Patch1

  1. C. J. Gould and
  2. R. L. Goss

Abstract

Both frequent-light and infrequent-heavy applications of benzimidazole fungicides protected Agrostis turf from attack by Fusarium nivale. Turf quality, however, was usually improved either by mixing a dithiocarbamate fungicide with the benzimidazole or by alternately applying the two types of fungicides. An alternating program should also be helpful in reducing chances for development of benzimidazole-resistant strains. Additional index words: Agrostis, Benzimidazole, Dithiocarbamate, Fungicides, Fusarium nivale, Fusarium Patch.
