Abstract:
Creeping bentgrass is seasonally stressed from high summer temperatures and high humidity conditions in the desert southwest from June to mid-September. Golf greens typically show decreased stand density and poor performance by the end of this time. A preventative fungicide application program was evaluated for the prevention of summer stress typical under summer conditions. Four tank mixes composed of Alliete Signature mixed with either Chipco 26019, EXP10790A, EXP10702B, or Daconil Ultrex fungicides were applied every fourteen days from June 10 to September 17, 1997, on a 'Penncross' creeping bentgrass green maintained at 5/32". The Daconil Ultrex tank mix caused some initial injury and in general, the lightest turfgrass color and the lowest turfgrass quality. EXP10702B treated turf produced, on average, the darkest turf with the leading rank score for quality. The Chipco 26019 tank mix produced the largest seasonal clipping totals, which was greater than the check. No diseases occurred on treated or untreated turf. Root dry weights in mid-October varied as much as 40% among treatments, but was not statistically significant.
