Title: First report of dollar spot of seashore Paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum) caused by Sclerotinia homoeocarpa in South China
Author: Lv, C.; Luo, L.; Li, J.; Hsiang, T.
Abstract: Seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum Swartz) is a warm season perennial grass, native to tropical and subtropical regions of North and South America (Carrow, 2000). Its fine texture and tolerance to low mowing and hypersaline environments make it a commercially promising turfgrass species for coastal regions of south China. In late March 2009, disease symptoms were observed from two golf courses fairways, in Shenzhen and Foshan, Guangdong province, China. Small, round patches from 25 to 75 mm diameter were found, consisting of bleached, straw color leaf lesions bounded by reddish-brown margins.
