Abstract/Contents:"Pythium Root Rot is a relatively new fungal disease affecting high-quality turfgrasses grown in the Northeast. This disease is characterized by a root and crown decay leading to a thinning or eventual loss of an established turfgrass stand. Although the occurrence of disease has been most frequently associated with highly maintained bentgrass/annual bluegrass putting greens on golf courses, it is can occasionally be a problem on home lawns. The disease can be quite damaging to several of the commonly planted turfgrass species, but it is particularly severe on bentgrasses and annual bluegrass."
Geographic Terms:Northeast United States
