St Augustine grass and Bermuda grass spread across Texas in almost epidemic proportions this spring This patch disease caused by a fungus was first seen in Texas in 1991 St Augustine sustained the greatest damage TakeAll patch is characterized by large circular patches of dead turf often ranging from a foot to several yards in diameter Affected areas show irreg ular patterns as individual spots merge or as the disease subsides temporarily and weeds fill thinned areas The dis ease is most visible in early spring and summer but damage occurs any time the grass is not dormant usually fol lowing stress such as the first hot dry days or application of a quickrelease fertilizer TakeAll patch may be mistaken for Brown patch or grubworm damage but a closer look at individual plants show several different characteristics TakeAll patch fungus causes extensive root rotting with a dry decay primari ly near the crown or nodes Stolons often have lesions or show a brownish discoloration Because the roots are rotted entire stolons may be lifted eas ily from the turf TakeAll patch destroys the roots of the plants and they dont recover Regrowth comes from the unaffected edges of the patch Although white grub damage also results in this condition grubs will be found in the soil especially early in the season Another difference grub damaged roots generally dont appear rotted Brown patch fungus causes the leaf sheath to rot Individual leaf blades on plants infected with Brown patch pull from the rest of the plant with a gentle tug and the base of the leaf sheath is often slimy and rotted Because Brown patch doesnt affect the roots plants tend to recover when midspring warm temperatures arrive and the fungus goes dormant The TakeAll patch fungus readily survives in accumulated thatch and on infected parts of living grass plants Most active when then is abundant moisture and night temperatures below 70 degrees such as in the fall and ear ly spring its active at lower tempera tures than Brown patch Both go dor mant with hot dry summer weather When environmental conditions are cool and moist the fungus grows on the surface of the roots stolons rhi zomes crowns and leaf sheaths of the grass As the fungus grows it pene trates the plant tissue causing it to decay The roots are rotted and begin to show symptoms Control of TakeAll patch requires a careful management strategy that com bines cultural and chemical approach es Cultural Cultural practices that allow the grass to establish a deeper more vigorous root system reduce the damage caused by TakeAll patch fungus Proper water management is critical This includes adequate surface and subsurface drainage as well as proper irrigation techniques Turf areas with water accu mulation in low spots should be mod ified to improve drainage Irrigate turf only when needed to maintain plant growth and vigor Infrequent but thor ough watering produces a deeprooted turfgrass The kind of fertilizer selected and when its applied appears to affect TakeAll patch Fertilizers that lower the soil pH such as ammonium sulfate seem to suppress the disease Take All patch like high pH alkaline soils so gradual applications of elemental sulfer at rates specified by a soil test analysis may be useful The last fer tilizer application of the season should be in early September Later applica tions delay dormancy in turf making it more susceptible to disease Prevent thatch buildup since the TakeAll fungus live quite happily on infested thatch Aerify to alleviate soil compaction This allows the grass to establish deeper more vigorous roots Chemical Fungicide applications should be considered only where Takeall patch has been identified on turf The approved rungicldes are not cheap dont use them unless youre sure you have TakeAll Timing is important too Apply fungicide in the fall since infection begins in late summer to ear ly fall and continues during the cool wet conditions of All and winter For more information
