Rust is a fungal disease caused by about a dozen species of the fungus Puccinia. It is a common disease of taller, mown turf. Rust disease occurs almost exclusively on Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. Rust is largely cosmetic but the yellow to orange spores that dislodge easily from leaf surfaces can be a greater nuisance covering shoes, pets, and lawnmowers with a rusty residue. Rust can severely damage new spring-seeded lawns that lose vigor during heat and drought conditions.

From a distance, rust-infected turf appears to have a yellow-green cast. Outbreaks usually first occur in shaded or protected areas, such as around the bases of evergreens or next to a structure’s foundation. Close inspection of rusted leaves will reveal numerous yellow-orange pustules on leaf blades. These spores carried by the wind, equipment, shoes, and animals spread the disease to other areas during the growing season. Rust outbreaks are most common in late summer and early fall. Factors such as summer heat and drought stress, compaction, low nitrogen levels, and shade contribute to poor growth that favors rust development. The pathogen survives as resilient spores over the winter, or as inactive mycelium in dormant turf.

Maintaining a healthy and vigorous turf is the most effective method of rust control. You should aerate your lawn annually, avoid late day watering, water deep and infrequently, and maintain turf fertility to lessen your susceptibility for rust development. Fungicides are usually unnecessary, but they can be useful as remedial treatments for intolerable outbreaks on established turf, or for infected juvenile turf during summer.
