There have been numerous reports this week of leaf tip burn on tall fescue. Some have also experienced “yellow spotting” symptoms. These symptoms seem to be the result of the sharp temperature drop experienced during the weekend of the 13th (March), not disease. The spoting was caused by walking/traffic on the cold-stressed turfgrass. The symptoms seem to be worse on well-fertilized turfgrass areas and may be present in other cool-season turfgrasses such as ryegrass and Kentucky bluegrass. These symptoms should be less apparent as temperatures continue to warm in the coming weeks. With new growth and mowing, turfgrass appearance will improve.
