A bad case of disease on this paspalum—probably way too much nitrogen.

If paspalum accumulates too much thatch, it will become very prone to scalping which will increase disease incidence very quickly.

Spurge is still the “indicator weed” for nematodes and paspalum can be severely affected by nematodes.

That’s nematode problems for sure
