Treating turf diseases calls for identification of the disease pathogen and selecting the proper treatment. Often, diseases are temporary in nature and the problem will correct itself. Other times, diseases are not treatable by any known means, and the grass must be left to either die or survive on its own. Most fungal diseases can be treated with off-the-shelf fungicides.
