Turfgrass Disease Profiles: Brown Patch (BP-106-W)

Purdue Extension Publication

Brown patch is caused by a fungal pathogen that affects all cool-season turfgrass species. Moderate to severe outbreaks on high-maintenance creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass can result in thin, poor quality turf that may be predisposed to algae and moss infestation. This publication describes the symptoms and development of this disease, and provides management options.
