Winter lawn disease - know what to look for

Fusarium Disease - Disease on turf usually appears as small orange/brown circular spots of approx 50mm in diameter, which under favourable conditions may join together with other affected areas and completely cover a lawn. 

Under humid, still conditions, you will notice a white, grey cotton wool like mycelium forming as a small mound on the surface of the lawn.  You will note an orange brown tinge to the circumference of the affected areas with mushy matted grass within.  Early diagnosis is important, especially over the winter and spring months.

New lawns are very susceptable to Fusarium Disease and this disease will easily wipe out a newly turved area.  It is not the fault of the turf supplier or landscaper who laid the new lawn.  More a case of 'Welcome to real grass and real grass problems.'  Education and diagnosis is the key.
