Root Diseases

A number of fungi can infect turfgrass roots and cause significant damage. The most important diseases are Pythium, brown patch, take-all, fairy ring, kikuyu yellows and spring dead patch.

Using fungicides to control these diseases can be difficult, as getting chemicals to the target can be a problem. Generally fungicides are applied in high water volumes or after application irrigation is used to move the chemicals into the root zone.

Timing of chemical application must be optimum and generally, this correlates to specific soil temperatures for each disease.
