Abstract/Contents:Discusses the pathogen Gaeumannomyces graminis var. graminis, which "is naturally present on warm-season turf roots. The trigger for disease is high rainfall and stressed turfgrass, so it is observed during the summer and very early fall when we receive the majority of our rainfall." Describe symptoms and signs of the disease, stating that "initial symptoms above-ground are irregular, yellow (chlorotic) or light green patches ranging in diameter from a few inches to a few feet. Roots will initially be thin and off-white in color. Eventually, roots will become very short, black and rotted." Discusses some cultural and chemical controls against the disease, stating that "measures that prevent or alleviate stress are the best methods for completely controlling the disease or at least decreasing the potential damage."
