More Than Just Turf
Yellow Tuft

Information

The causal agent for yellow tuft is shlerophthora macrospore and it can affect all turfgrass species. Individual plants form into a dense turf of yellow leaves resulting in a bumpy surface. Yellow turfs are easily confused with poa annua but can be distinguished by the tight proliferation of leaves together with a weakened root system which enables the tufts to be easily pulled out.

Solutions

  • Address any drainage issues and if irrigating the lawn it is beneficial to reduce the rate of water application.
