Spring Dead Spot Disease
Spring Dead Spot disease is common on bermudagrass lawns and usually shows up in late March, April, and May as the turf greens up. The disease is identified as circular spots of dead turf ranging from a few inches to several feet in diameter. The spots can overlap and form larger areas. The causal agent of spring dead spot attacks the roots, crown, stolons and rhizomes in the fall and predisposes the bermudagrass to winter-kill.
