Controlling anthracnose is more than just spraying fungicides. In this 90-minute webcast, Jim Murphy, Ph.D., and Bruce Clarke, Ph.D., discuss the set of best management practices that Rutgers has developed from more than 15 years of research. You’ll hear how crucial good cultural practices, such as providing adequate Nitrogen fertility and timing of topdressing, can be to reducing anthracnose. Also reviewed are adjusting mowing heights and frequencies, lightweight rolling, using PGRS and irrigation quantity. Then, development and implementation of sound chemical control strategies, with the latest product options and research round out the agenda.
