Symptoms: Small spots of bleached turf on close mown turfgrass. Spots may coalesce to form large areas of affected turf. White mycelium may be present of affected areas on dewy mornings.

Main Causes: Fungus.

Time of Year: Summer and Autumn.


Cultural: Remove surface moisture (switch when dew occurs); encourage morning sunlight penetration; encourage air movement over the surface; ensure appropriate fertility; reduce thatch; aerate surface.

Biological: Some biocontrol products have proved effective in reducing potential infection at lower disease risk.

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