TURFGRASS DISEASE IDENTIFICATION

Many diseases occur on the turfgrasses that are used throughout North Carolina. Most of the diseases included here are caused by fungi. Some problems that resemble diseases are caused by environmental or management factors such as cold, heat, drought, high soluble salts, soil compaction, or chemical damage. Careful identification of the cause of a problem is important for the selection of proper control methods.
