Dollar spot - two articles!
Dollar spot was officially documented in Norway in 2013 and in Sweden in 2014. In Denmark, the disease has been seen for at least 10 years. As far as we know, the disease exists on a large number of golf courses in the Nordic countries. On some Nordic courses, and for some years, the damage from dollar spot is severe with up to 70-80% dead grass on greens and fairways. Read the two articles from the ongoing project; "Risk of dollar spot on Norwegian golf courses" and "In vitro screening for resistance to dollar spot".

SCANGREEN 2015-2018
SCANGREEN – testing of species and varieties for Scandinavia - was initiated in 2003, and since then it has been part of the STERF research programme. In this article we summarize the general impressions and make recommendations for the best varieties of red fescue, colonial and creeping bentgrass based on the trials in 2015-2018. The article can be found below in English, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish!
