2016 – 02a The Effect of Snow Cover and Anti-Transpirants on the Persistence of Snow Mould Fungicides

The objective of this project, coordinated by Dr. Paul Koch at the University of Wisconsin, is to determine the rate of degradation of fungicides chlorothalonil and propiconazole applied alone or as a mixture with an anti-transpirant under constant snow cover and in the complete absence of snow. It will also correlate the fungicide concentrations on the leaf blades sampled from the field with the level of disease symptoms on creeping bentgrass plants inoculated with snow mould fungi incubated in a growth chamber. The work will be completed in June 2019.
