Turfgrass in home and commercial lawns, including grasses in sports fields and golf courses, are subject to a number of different diseases. Knowing when these diseases are likely to be active can aid in identification and management. The Kentucky Turfgrass Disease Calendar provides information regarding seasonal disease pressure for a number of turfgrass diseases occurring in the Commonwealth. In addition, the grasses commonly affected are listed for each disease.
Newly revised and expanded, Kentucky Turfgrass Disease Calendar (PPFS-OR-T-09) is available online.
