Greenkeepers news 


As the mild winter continues, so does thedisease activity on and around the greens.Fusarium which is fungal seems to be causing thebiggest problem currently and has been treatedwith a systemic and contact chemical which stopsspore germination and prevents the spread. 

When active these patches become a red tintedcolour around the outside and if not treatedstraight away with the correct cultural andchemical practise, could lead to the grassputting surface being effected.
