Here we will discuss some common turf grass diseases that impact cool and warm season turfgrasses that are commonly used in our area.
Yellow Patch Disease
This cool season turfgrass disease affects bluegrasses and common fescues that we use for lawns in the High Country. It pops up after a lengthy period of temperatures that linger between 50- and 65-degrees Fahrenheit, however it can occur in other ranges. You’ll notice circular rings up to 3 feet in diameter that are yellow or white in color. Plants will die exhibiting a yellow color on leaves or will entirely dieback. It responds well to controls and is made worse by adding high levels of nitrogen or nitrogen producing elements.
White Patch Disease
Not to be confused with yellow patch, white patch, also called white blight is a disease that is commonly seen in transitional areas where tall fescue bluegrass is used. The disease arises in times of very hot humid weather. You’ll notice white circles that reach up to a foot in diameter, and tiny white or tan mushrooms. Under irrigated tall fescue grass and grass that is deficient in nitrogen can exhibit symptoms of white patch disease. This common disease responds well with nitrogen applications at the right time of the year.
Powdery Mildew in Turf
Ever notice a powdery looking substance begin to invade your lawn in shady areas where the sun does not reach nearly as much? The white, or gray powdery substance is a growth of mildew / fungus that can takeover your lawn in a matter of a few weeks. The leaves of affected plants and turf will turn a yellow or red color and will die over time. Typically, this problem is noticed in the spring months when it begins producing and spreading when spores are produced in the spring.
