Evaluation of Turfgrass Establishment Systems for Pesticide Reduction
Rossi, Frank S.; Nelson, Eric B.
The long term goal of the proposed work is to determine optimum turfgrass establishment programs the lead to a more stress tolerant, disease resistant stand of turf less reliant on pesticides. The objectives of this project are to determine optimum creeping bentgrass seed rate, evaluate microbial seed treatment on seedling survival and suppression of seedling disease, and assess the impact of seed rates and treatments on the incidence of foliar and root diseases in the mature turfgrass stand.
