Tolerance of Cool-Season Turfgrasses to Rapid Blight Disease
P. D. Peterson, S. B. Martin, and J. J. Camberato
Forty-nine different cool-season grass cultivars representing 24 species were tested for their tolerance to the causal agent of rapid blight. A high degree of susceptibility was observed in cultivars of rough bluegrass, colonial and velvet bentgrasses, and perennial ryegrass, while certain cultivars of alkaligrass, slender creeping red fescue, and creeping bentgrass appear to have moderate levels of tolerance.
