Snow mold is a fungus. During cool, wet weather, reddish brown circular patches (1 to 2 inches in diameter) of turf appear. White or pinkish fungal growth may be at the advancing edge of the patch. Patches may enlarge and coalesce to form extensive affected areas. The center is generally tan and may contain uninjured grass. In areas with snow cover, the fungus may grow beneath the snow or, more commonly, as snow melts. You can use a fungicide such as Daconil Weather Stik or Hi-Yield Turf and Ornamental Fungicide. Apply according to label directions.
