These newer bentgrass cultivars seem to tolerate lower summer mowing better than other conventional cultivars. Turf injured by mowing during hot and relatively dry periods usually will appear reddish-brown for a few days, and in more severe cases leaves turn tan and stand density declines. Anthracnose may appear on droughtstressed grass, especially annual bluegrass grown on greens.
