(Gaeumannomyces graminis, Laetisaria fuciformis, Monographella nivalis and other species) Lawn grasses are subject to a number of disease problems. Luckily, they rarely do very severe damage, but can lead to brown patches and areas of dead grass.
(Numerous fungal species – including Cercospora, Microsphaeropsis and Septoria) Fungal leaf spot diseases attack a very wide range of plants, producing spotting or marks, in numerous different shapes, sizes and colours, on the leaves.
(Fusarium, Phytophthora, Pythium, Rhizoctonia) Damping off is a disease that affects seedlings, causing them to collapse, keel over and die. They may also become covered in a whitish, furry fungal growth.
(Monilinia laxa and M. fructigena) Brown rot is a fungal disease of fruit – especially apples, pears and plums – causing the fruit to rot. Shrivelled “mummified” fruit remain in the tree, spreading the disease.
(Cylindrocladium buxicola and Pseudonectria buxi) Box blight is a devastating fungal disease of box (Buxus) plants. It kills the leaves, resulting in extensive bare patches, and affected plants die back.
