A brief tour of the course today as the snow has melted for the most part yielded some interesting findings.
Our treatment for snow mold for the winter 2009/2010 was 4 oz/PCNB (pentachloronitrobenzene - say that 5 times real fast) per thousand square feet. That rate was low but worth a shot. I shudder to think what it would've looked like had we skipped the application.
Our fungicide application for 2010/2011 was 1 oz/Tebuconazole and 2 oz/thiophanate methyl per thousand square feet. This rate provided 100% control for our fairways. This is the first time since I've worked at Blackhawk that we haven't experienced moderate to severe snow mold injury. I am glad we chose to NOT skip this application as well. It will be nice to not have to grow out snow mold damage for a change.
Be sure to check the 'weather' tab on your right to get a good idea of the forecast. Have a great weekend!
