Abstract/Contents:States that "disease management depends on accurate diagnosis and identification of the causal pathogen and can be one of the most complex problems a superintendent faces in maintaining high-quality turfgrass." Profiles Rhizoctonia, stating that "the genus Rhizoctonia was first described as a fungus that produces uniform sclerotia and is associated with roots of plants. Sclerotaia are survival structures produced by some Rhizoctonia species." Describes possible visual symptoms of Rhizoctonia infection, stating that "in general, symptoms appear as patches or rings of discolored to dead turf. Patches vary in size from 12 inches to several feet (0.3 to a few meters) across and can range in color from brown to orange and yellow." Also describes possible symptoms of brown patch, large patch, yellow patch, Rhizoctonia leaf and sheath spot, and brown ring patch. Concludes that "distinguishing between the different diseases is important because different cultural practices and different approaches can make the difference between control or continued progression of the disease."
