Root Rot – Take All Root Rot
Florida grasses are prone to root rot
Take-all Root Rot is a disease that can quickly and easily destroy your beautiful Tampa Bay lawn, right before your eyes. Take all root rot is common in the hot, humid, over-wet Florida climate. It is also common in Texas and California. During periods of high rainfall, root rot is at its peak. Ultimately, root rot causes the root of the grass to rot and therefore, it is no longer able to efficiently obtain water or nutrients from the soil. The water and nutrients are not stored, and therefore, photosynthesis is not possible.

Root rot does not attack the leaves or grasses, only the root systems. The beginning stages of root rot are simple showings of yellow or light green patches in your lawn. These beginning patches can range from a few inches in diameter to a few feet. The patches are irregular and often scattered. As the disease progresses, the roots become short, black and rotted. If not controlled, entire sections of lawn can be compromised, resulting in bare patches. Because it is a disease affecting the root system, it is often difficult to notice until it progresses. By the time symptoms appear on the surface, on the leaves, the roots have been damaged.
Root rot can sometimes appear to be another problem, like chinch bugs.
