CDGA Research on Waitea Patch - #15 Green

For the 4th year the CDGA will be conducting research on #15 green to better understand how to control a disease called Watiea.  Waitea causes a yellowing of poa annua in a small ring shaped pattern.  It does not kill the grass, but can make it look pretty sick.  Waitea has become more of an issue every spring for golf courses across the country and the research being conducted at Biltmore has helped superintendents to manage this disease.

Preparing to apply the different treatments to the green for the control of Waitea Patch.
