Bacterial etiolation and decline questions

I’ve had a few questions this summer about bacterial etiolation and decline in bentgrass putting greens. I routinely check for this disease but have not observed it this year in any samples submitted to KSU so far.

A few days on Twitter I saw an excellent update from Dr. Rick Latin (Purdue University) about this disease. You can click HERE to read it.
