Brown Patch on the Move

May 29, 2009

Recent weather patterns have been favorable for brown patch to start showing up on cool-season turfgrasses across much of North Carolina.  In particular, the past few nights have been relatively warm coupled with higher humidity and frequent rain showers.  This provides ideal conditions for this fungus to take off.  Preventative measures should be taken now before the average daily temperature gets too high for cool-season turfgrasses to recover.
