Why does dollar spot seem to be much worse or more aggressive now than in the past? Nutritional and environmental requirements for pathogen growth remain the same. Turf management practices have seen significant changes in the past 40 years.
Dollar spot control options can be classified as genetic, biological, cultural, and chemical.
In this TurfNet University webinar, Rick Latin, Ph.D. of Purdue University (retired) will discuss the chemical arsenal used to control dollar spot. That includes seven classes of fungicides that might differ with regard to mode of action and phytomobility.
The presentation will focus on fungicides that affect different targets in pathogen cells. It also will include information on resistance, including mutation and selection pressure, cross resistance, resistance mechanisms and persistance of resistant strains.
