Question:I am sending you a small piece of Kentucky bluegrass sod which appears to have a mildew which gives off a fine dust when the grass is perfectly dry. I should appreciate your advising me what is affecting the bluegrass, if there is any danger from it, and, if so, how it can be treated.

Answer/Response:The sample you sent was affected by powdery mildew. This commonly occurs on Kentucky bluegrass in the spring, but we have never seen it do any serious harm. This fungus can be controlled by dusting it with finely powdered sulphur. This is the treatment we use in the greenhouse, where the disease is troublesome in propagating stock material. We do not know of any place where the disease has been troublesome enough to justify treatment out-of-doors.
