Leaf and Crown diseases

A number of fungi can infect turfgrass leaves and stems, causing significant damage. The most important diseases are dollar spot, anthracnose, helminthosporium, rust and curvularia. Many broad spectrum fungicides are effective to control a number of these diseases.

Disease infection is linked to environmental factors such as temperature and humidity. Abiotic stresses and nutritional levels can also impact on the development of these diseases.
