Fusarium is a fungal disease of lawns. It causes grass leaves to loose colour, brown and die. Fusarium patches are circular and can grow to 50 cm in diameter.
Fusarium patch usually appears in orange/brown circular spots up to 50 cm in diameter. Spots will quickly increase in size under favourable conditions for the disease. They are quite noticeable during periods of early morning dew. During long periods of damp weather a pink ring of mycelium can be seen around the infected area of lawn or turf.
Snow mould is a form that is often found after snow thaw and can be identified by a pink tinge to the edge of the dead patch caused by red spores.
Warm and humid conditions in autumn encourage fusarium.
