AMENITY & LEISURE SPORTS TURF Alert! Two new turf diseases The Turf Disease Centre reports that two newly-emerging turf diseases have recently been confirmed in samples received from golf courses in the UK and Ireland - and it is suspected that they are more prevalent in areas of fine turf than currently recorded. During 2012, the Centre will be collating information on turf samples received for analysis that are positively identified with either of these two diseases and a summary will be published later this year to show their recorded regional occurrence. The most important step in effective turf disease management is the identification of the cause with the apparent emergence of these new disease problems Fig.1.
