Potassium Influences Forage Bermudagrass Yield and Fungal Leaf Disease Severity in Mississippi
J. J. Read and R. G. Pratt
Fungal diseases in bermudagrass and numerous other crops have been associated with K deficiency. This study evaluated how levels of K in potash fertilizer (0-0-60) and broiler litter influenced forage yields and severity of disease symptoms caused by a natural complex of fungal pathogens in ‘Tifton 44’ bermudagrass in Mississippi. The relative incidence at different K levels of six species of Bipolaris, Curvularia, and Exserohilum in the complex was also investigated.
