Diseases most often occur
on lawns that are stressed from factors such as drought, excess moisture,
heat, or high traffic. Pathogenic diseases in turf are mostly caused
by fungi, but a few bacterial diseases are problems as well. For
a pathogen to become damaging, the disease-causing agent must be
present on a susceptible grass species, and the surrounding environmental
conditions must favor the development of the disease.
