Turf Blog Featured on

Last summer, about 2 months or so after the launch of the Turf Diseases blog, I was interviewed about the groups’ new plan to assist golf course superintendents with their turf problems. While visiting a student intern at Whistling Straits, I relayed the start of the blog to GCSAA. It is interesting to look back at this video and see how far we have come in just over a year. We have since increased our awareness on twitter and more importantly and more effectively created a Facebook Fanpage to help superintendents and others interested in turf diseases keep up to date. We have also added the international posts to assist those in other countries who may not have the resources available to identify diseases or select the proper control measures.

Although we are currently taking things slowly so that we don’t get too far ahead of ourselves, we are constantly thinking of new ways to make the site better. If you have any ideas on what we can do (that won’t take us 40 hours per week to do), please feel free to let us know. We are currently running the various sites using our own time and resources and this is the limiting factor, but we try to post the most timely and relevant information as often as possible. Again, I know that many of you are lurkers and don’t comment, but if you feel the urge please leave a comment and let us know what you think.

Congrats on the site, it's always very interesting and informative and many times amusing. I'm always thankful that we dont have the disease range here in Ireland that you guys have to deal with! Keep up the excellent work, John Dempsey.

I never heard of this disease even before. What probably is the cause of such disease?

Collecting and removing the grass clippings is not only unnecessary, it may in fact be counterproductive to growing a healthy lawn.
