The article reports the diagnosis of several leaf samples from golf greens in laboratory. It informs that fairy ring was present on the warm and dry kind of samples whereas Brown ring patch was present on leaf samples grew in light rain and slightly cooler temperatures. It further states that various types of boxwood are found in New Jersey landscapes and most of them are infected with leaf and stem blight which is caused by the fungusVolutella buxi.Volutella.
