The Possibility of Controlling Fairy Ring and Rust Diseases in Lawns with Benodanil1
- R. Helmes and
- F. Loecher
Benodanil was found to suppress growth of the fairy ring fungus (Marasmius oreades) when applied to lawns as a drench at 2 to 5 g a.i. in 2 to 5 liters of water/m2. Control was obtained both with May and September/October applications. The injured portions of lawn recovered after treatment during the course of the vegetation period.
The same fungicide, sprayed at 1 kg a.i./ha at 14-day intervals also controlled rust diseases (Puccinia spp.) of lawngrasses when treatment was made at the beginning of the infection.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
