Effect of Snow Removal on Typhula Blight Development at High Elevation Golf Courses in Colorado

Fig. 4. Effect of snow removal and fungicide applications on Typhula blight severity at Vail and Breckenridge, CO, 2005-2006. The fungicide quintozene was applied 25 October prior to permanent snow cover on 14 November 2005. Snow was not removed (none), removed at approximately weekly intervals during November (Fall), or from 14 March, 2007 until snow melt on 20 April (Spring). Final ratings were taken on 27 April. Damage resulting from the November snow removal was a combination of winter injury and Typhula blight development. Means not followed by the same letter are significantly different (P = 0.05) by Fisher’s LSD test.
