Rutgers turf instructor Richard Buckley talks gray snow mold

We (us pathology types) generally talk about gray snow mold as a disease that does not result in dead turf. In fact, the fungus that causes the disease in our area, Typhula incarnata, is generally considered a leaf blighting fungus. As bad as the grass can look when the snow melts, the crowns are mostly spared, so diseased plants eventually regrow and recover the stand. A couple weeks of warmth, some April showers, add a little nitrogen, and the grass is off to the races – well prepared for a little brown patch in the dog days of summer.
