Typhula incarnata is, along with Typhula ishikariensis, the causal agent of Grey Snow Mould (also called Speckled Snow Mould or Typhula Blight), a plant pathogen that can destroy turfgrass when covered for a long perioid with snow. It is a particular problem on golf courses established in unsuitable areas.[1] More importantly, it can also damage crops of winter wheat.[2]
