Getting the Most out of PGR Applications on Bentgrass

Presentation notes: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pefce67f9m57q7x/PGR%20Applications_ATA.pdf?dl=0

Growing degree day models have been developed to assist superintendents with properly timing PGR applications. However, many superintendents in West Texas were suggesting PGRs were not providing adequate suppression following application, especially in higher foliar growth periods. Collaborative research was conducted at golf courses in Lubbock, Texas and Fayetteville, AR to better understand foliar suppression and beneficial effects of PGR applications. Appropriate rates for growth were deemed highly important, especially with products containing paclobutrazol, to limit phytotoxicity. However, these products and combination products provided much greater suppression during summer months when foliar growth was accelerated in the region. All products provided suppression of growth, but the level of suppression and length of time were reduced for some products.

Why are my Pesticides Becoming Less Effective?

Presentation notes: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nfopfmmf39bgnjh/Pesticide%20Resistance_ATA.pdf?dl=0

One attribute about pests is high persistence under various selection pressure. Pests experience many physical, environmental, and chemical selection pressures that reduce sensitivity to control mechanisms. This presentation will discuss these attributes within turf disease and weed populations. Basic terms will be defined and mechanisms of resistance will be described. The second portion of this talk will provide solutions for minimizing pesticide resistance issues or overcoming resistance in populations that are exhibiting limited control following chemical applications. Increasing knowledge and developing an effective management plan is critical to reduce pesticide resistance at your property or properties.

Site Specific Management of Spring Dead Spot

Presentation notes: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6qdu59zdx16h0ia/JBOOTH.ARKANSASTC2019.SDS.pdf?dl=0

Spring Dead Spot (SDS) is among the most destructive diseases of bermudagrass in colder regions of adaptation. While symptoms occur in the spring, fungicide applications need to be made in the fall of the year when the pathogen is active. New technologies provide unique opportunities to manage this frustrating disease. Aerial mapping of symptoms in the spring followed by site-specific fungicide applications in the fall, based on disease history, may provide turfgrass managers improved control while reducing inputs.
