Lawn diseases can be limited if the proper cultural practices, balanced fertilization program, sunlight, and irrigating occur during the season. This approach starts in spring and ends in fall in the New England area. Turf diseases occur under certain environmental stresses such as extended snow cover, shade, airflow, temperatures, humidity, and rainfall. Diseases attack specific varieties of turfgrass plants during the growing season. All diseases can be controlled with cultural practices and liquid or granular fungicides.
