Question:During the past few years we have had in July a condition on our greens similar to dollarspot. There are poplar trees in the near vicinity of the affected greens and the greenkeeper maintains that the symptoms on the grass come from the fuzz which is blown off the poplar trees. No other greens of ours are thus affected. Have you ever heard of a similar condition? In your opinion, are the symptoms on the grass caused by the poplar "fuzz"?

Answer/Response:The symptoms which you mention were probably those of dollarspot. Dollarspot is caused by a fungus which appears on the grass as a fuzzy growth of mold in the early morning before the sun dries it out. The "fuzz" from the cottonwood or poplar trees is sometimse confused by greenkeepers with the moldy growth that produces dollarspot. Actually, however, there is no connection whatever between the two, nor is there any evidence that this deposit from the poplar trees causes any harm to the grass. We think you will find it is just a coincidence that the dollarspot occurs in the areas near the poplar trees.
