Abstract

Efficacy of fungicides for turfgrass disease control in Mississippi.

Abstract

The response of bermudagrass turf [Cynodon dactylon] to experimentally applied fungicides and their comparison with commercial fungicides to control Rhizoctonia solani (brown patch), Sclerotinia homoeocarpa (dollar spot), Drechslera gigantea (zonate eyespot) and Bipolaris cynodontis [Cochliobolus cynodontis](leaf blotch) was determined. Plots treated with Sentinel [propachlor] or San 832F gave the best control of brown patch. Dollar spot control was best achieved by Chipco 26019 [iprodione].
