Large Patch- Zoysia Grass

The Zoysia Grass fairways at HP consistently have provided excellent playing conditions and is a very sustainable grass with fewer inputs of fertilizer, cultural practices, water and fungicides. With that said, the fairways are off to a slightly slower start this season with the sustained cooler temperatures. One of the few pathogens that impacts Zoysia grass is Large Patch. Below is a photo of Large Patch, theses rings, orange in color range from 1 to 4 feet in a handful of the fairways. We apply two preventative fungicide applications once in the spring and once in the fall, currently we are spot treating for any new blighting that occurs. Warm, dry weather will help the Zoysia recover.

Thank-you
