Pseudomonas aureofaciens strain Tx-1 is a microbial pesticide that is used for controlling various fungal diseases of golf course turf. Large amounts of the microbe are grown in a production facility at the golf course, and the microbes are then distributed through the golf course irrigation system. EPA has approved the use of this pesticide until early in 2001, while it waits for additional data needs to more fully characterize the risks to non-target organisms. Available information indicates that use of the pesticide is not expected to have adverse health effects on humans.
