An easy way to identify turf pests

Diagnosing and managing diseases can be challenging. To help superintendents better identify, target and control key diseases in golf course turf, Syngenta launched its free turfgrass disease identification guide.

This digital tool provides in-depth information about more than 25 key turf diseases including dollar spot, fairy ring, spring dead spot, Pythium diseases and more. The guide contains easy-to-use filters, including turf type and geography, to help users quickly find disease information.  

To help with proper identification, the guide provides images along with details like:

  • Causal agents
  • Symptoms
  • Conditions favoring disease development
  • Traditionally susceptible geographies

Photo identification cannot replace sending a turf sample to a diagnostic lab, and correct identification is only the first step in effective disease management. The guide also provides management tips and recommended control products to help superintendents take the next steps toward improved turf quality.
