Brown patch is a common fungus disease on lawns and can spread quickly after they initially appear. Bermuda grass can turn brown when night temperatures exceed 68 degrees Fahrenheit, day temperatures exceed 80 degrees and the grass has been heavily fertilized. It is important to manage Bermuda grass well, ensuring that excessive nitrogen is not applied and that it is watered only when the soil is dry.
