Rust can vary depending on plants, with rust on turf being very different from something like cedar-apple rust. On turf, rust appears as small orange pustules all over leaf tissue. It is easily brushed off and leaves a powdery orange dust/residue on your hand as you wipe it off, leaving yellow, chlorotic leaf tissue beneath. Rust on turf is most commonly found in early fall and can be a sign of nitrogen deficiency. Fertilizer is often enough to push out rust, but if looking for how to treat rust in your lawn that is persisting, there are numerous fungicides that can take care of this disease. Many other plants, including flowering plants can also suffer from various types of rust; these diseases generally leave yellow or orange spots on the tops of leaves, with orange to brown-colored pustules and spores on the underside of the leaves wherever spotting is. Leaves that are affected with rust will often start wilting. Rust on flowering plants is generally found in late spring or early fall when you can have cool evenings, warm days, and high humidity. In MOST cases, fungicides can be successful in the treatment of rust, though this can be completely host dependent. In particular, Cedar-Apple rust is one of the more common rust found in the ornamental landscape. This disease can only be treated preventatively, and once rust has infected a tree, the damage will remain the rest of that year. Cedar-Apple Rust is similar to other rusts in leaving yellow-orange lesions on top of the leaves with large disease pustules on the underside that look like orange-brown crowns. As the name implies, Cedar-Apple rust requires both the apple tree and cedar tree to completes its life-cycle. Before the apple tree is even infected, disease galls will form on local cedar trees, that look like large brown balls with holes. As humidity gets worse, long gelatinous tentacles emerge from the galls, and the disease spores within these tentacles are what eventually infect the apple tree. Due to this unique cycle of the disease, removing one of the two host plants will eliminate the problem, so in the case of protecting apple tree form cedar-apple rust it is highly recommended that all close cedars trees are removed, within reason. This simple elimination of one of the two hosts is by the far best control for the disease. When looking for how to treat rust, plant identification is essential before choosing a professional fungicide or other method of remedy.
