Brown Patch

Symptoms: Tan to dark patches. In humid conditions a brown/grey ‘smoke ring may develop around the edge. On closer-mown golf and bowling green turf, circular patches of tan-coloured grass up to 50-60cm in diameter can be seen.

Main Causes: Water-repellent soil.

Time of Year: Summer.


Cultural: Ensure adequate drainage, reduce surface moisture, control thatch layer, encourage morning sunlight penetration, encourage air movement over the surface, appropriate use of fertiliser as lush grass is more susceptible.

Chemical: Effective fungicides are available. Timing of application dictates optimal performance. Preventative use during periods of high disease pressure provides optimal control.
