Evaluation of Conventional and Alternative Products for Silvery-thread Moss Control in Creeping Bentgrass
C. Thompson, J. Fry, and M. Kennelly
Silvery-thread moss is a common weed in creeping bentgrass putting greens, and control strategies alternative to the conventional use of synthetic pesticides may be useful. Spot-spray treatments of sodium bicarbonate (SB), potassium bicarbonate (PB), and essential oil, as well as broadcast treatments of SB, PB, and carfentrazone-ethyl were applied twice in the spring and fall (4 applications each year). Moss severity and creeping bentgrass color were assessed biweekly.
