Irrigation
Among the most important items on the turf manager's agenda, irrigation is a year-round concern in the South, where the Bermudagrass growing season extends from May through September, only to be replaced by ryegrass overseeding once the Bermuda turns a dormant brown. In areas farther north, irrigation systems should be inspected for functionality as soon as the frost leaves the ground - ideally between April 1 and May 15, depending on the locale.

"a dormant brown" means the color of the grass is not brown for some other reason such as no water or no fertilizer.
When winter comes, this type of grass will turn from green to brown in color when it goes dormant, and a good agricultural specialist can tell by looking at the color of the grass (the shade of brown) the reason for it having turned that shade. Many trees and grasses go dormant in the winter, and they turn a specific shade of color when that happens.
In English we sometimes will add a descriptive word to a color. For example:
His face turned seasick green when the sea turned stormy.
