10-Year NC County Golf Sample Review

— Written By

The following data was collected from samples submitted to the North Carolina State Turf Diagnostics Lab from 2011 to 2020. This information shows all of the diagnoses we have made on these hosts (creeping bentgrass and bermudagrass putting greens) over the past 10 years. These data highlight where the samples came from and where we have confirmed each disease. This does not mean these diseases only occur in these counties, but gives you an idea of what we’ve seen and where. These data do not include diagnoses of “no pathogen found” or abiotic issues.
