Isolation frequency of Ophiosphaerella korrae (spring dead spot pathogen) from Cynodon dactylon (bermudagrass) roots at a golf course near West Point, Mississippi, was monitored over a 3-year investigation. Laboratory and greenhouse experiments were conducted to determine optimal temperatures for the growth of selected O. korrae isolates collected from the field study and to evaluate those isolates for pathogenicity potential. Isolation frequencies of the pathogen from naturally infested root… CONTINUE READING
