I don't have a lot of news, but I wanted to share these very cool photos that were sent by Darin Pearson at Eagle Bend Golf Course in Lawrence. The course is stripping zoysia into rye, and you can see how the large patch is expressed in the susceptible turf (zoysia) while leaving the rye seemingly untouched.
Starting tomorrow I'm off to Tajikistan for about 10 days.
I wonder how the turf world will change while I'm gone. It could be cool and rainy, hot and dry, hot and sticky... we'll see. It's always interesting to see how quickly diseases can come and go in our variable climate. So far, there hasn't been any dollar spot here in our research plots, for example, but it could take off soon... or not, depending on what Mother Nature does.
