[Puccinia spp.]

Situation: Most common on Ryegrass but can infect other species as well.

Turf damage: With severe infection turf density can become thin and chlorotic. Orange pustules of spores on the leaves help identify the disease.

Occurrence: This disease generally occurs in cool weather when the turfgrass is not growing rapidly. Prolonged leaf wetness will increase infection.
