Title: Snow Mold Investigations in Eastern Washington

Author: Filer, T. H.; Law, A. G.;

Date: 1961

Source: In: Fifteenth Annual Northwest Turf Conference Proceedings. 7-8.

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: "Snow mold of turf" in the Pacific Northwest must include both Fusarium Patch caused by Calonectria graminicola (Berk and Br.) (conidial stage Fusarium nivale (Fr. ) CES.), and Gray snow mold caused by Typhula itoana Imai, which occur together to give a disease complex. Snow mold of turf is the most destructive disease in many parts of the Northwest. It is very common in eastern Washington, northcentral Idaho, and western Montana where snow covers the turf for long periods. Attempts to control snow mold on turf in this region have been only partially successful. Tests were undertaken to determine the rate and kind of chemicals ┬Ěthat would provide the best control of snow mold. This is a report on these tests.
