Editorial Reviews

Designed to enhance the diagnostic capabilities of practitioners and students interested in the diseases and causal pathogens of turfgrass science. Contains quality color photographs of warm and cool season turfgrass diseases in multiple stages, showing initial, classic and advanced dead turf symptoms; close-ups of shoot lesions are shown as appropriate. There are additional photos of fungal structures and mycelial mats grown in petri dishes which can be used to identify pathogens. Considerable attention is placed on turfgrass cultural practices and curative fungicide approaches as opposed to preventative fungicide use. 10x7.25<"> Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
