Welcome to MSU Turf Diseases.net. This site is intended to help you learn the key
identification characteristics of common and not-so-common turfgrass diseases found in Michigan and
the midwest. Correct identification is the first step to proper management.
We have created biography pages for each disease to help you better understand why diseases invade. The biography pages include information on habitat, alternative
common names (AKA), look-a-likes, management practices and chemical controls.
