Coming soon… comprehensive guide to Microdochium Patch

This October Bayer is launching a brand-new guide to aid greenkeepers in tackling the notorious disease that occurs on over 90% of UK golf courses – Microdochium Patch, that is more commonly known as Fusarium.

The comprehensive guide will cover all aspects of managing Microdochium Patch, from understanding the issue and identification, to preventing and curing the disease using a variety of methods.

Dr Colin Mumford, Bayer technical manager, has worked to inform the guide and he explains that it will detail how to use an integrated approach for the most successful disease management programme. 

“For example, cultural and biological practices should be considered ahead of any pesticide application, when implementing an integrated approach,” he says. 

 “It’s also important that greenkeepers select the appropriate fungicide for their individual disease outbreak. Whether you need a systemic or contact acting product, or want to know how to rotate fungicide groups, the guide will assist in your decision.”

The essential guide will be available to download or order from the Bayer website this October, or you can pick up a copy on the Bayer stand D037 at SALTEX from 1 – 2 November.
