If you are interested in periodic assessments of turf disease threats in Indiana, then you should check out our TURFCAST website. The website offers daily risk assessments for certain diseases (dollar spot, brown patch, and Pythium blight) and weekly comments by me at "Turf Disease Watch" this is based on my observations at Purdue¹s Daniel Turf Center and out in the state. It also includes a chart of soil temperatures recorded here in West Lafayette, which I use to comment on the timing for fungicide applications for summer patch control.

You can access TURFCAST through our Purdue Turf website (, or simply Google "Purdue TURFCAST".
