Our grasses in the upper Midwest are considered cool-season grasses. They perform best when temperatures are cool – under 75 degrees. So when things heat up and dry out the grass gets really stressed and becomes more susceptible to diseases. Fungus can often be controlled by addressing the environmental stresses that are causing them (i.e. heat and dryness). The 2 common funguses in the Sioux Falls area and region are pictured below.
Dollar Spot starts out as small, brown circular patches. If you look closely at an affected blade of grass, you’ll see that the tip is dying back and that there’s a yellow hourglass shaped band going across the grass blade. If left untreated, the small circular patches can turn into large areas.
Leaf Blight starts out as irregular shaped, brown patches. If you look closely at an affected blade of grass, you’ll see that the tip is dying back and that there are red, black, or brown spots on the blade. If left untreated, areas of leaf blight will turn into large areas.
