Since the beginning, Turf Diseases has been making headlines in the turfgrass popular press. Immediately after the launch of Turf Diseases in May 2009, a short description of the blog called “Turfing the Net” was published in Golf Course Management Magazine (June 2009). Based on the success of the blog and its integration with various other social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook, Turf Diseases was featured as part of a cover story in Golf Course Industry Magazine (October 2010). In addition to the interest from the turfgrass community, the scientific community started to take notice. In March of 2011, CSA News Magazine featured Turf Diseases once again as part of a cover story on the use of social media in academia, agriculture and extension.
