Managing turfgrass diseases in Asia with minimal input

Managing turfgrass diseases in Asia with minimal input

These are my slides for a presentation in Boston at the International Congress of Plant Pathology. I spoke in the session on "Precision Turf and Ornamental Disease Management in the 21st Century" and discussed managing diseases with minimal input by first choosing the grass that will get the fewest diseases. I also discussed how one can manage the grass to minimize disease problems by applying the temperature-based growth potential of PACE Turf, using MLSN to ensure the grass is supplied with enough nutrients, and adjusting the growth rate by measuring the clipping volume.
