Diseases You May Be Battling in the North



Diseases You May Be Battling in the North

Depending on your location in the northern growing areas, different things are happening.

Dollar Spot

Dollar spot is very active.  Propiconazole is an excellent fungicide to prevent or cure dollar spot.  Propiconazole is labelled for both golf and residential turf.  Dollar spot initially can be seen as small circular spots, but will progress together to form large affected areas.  When looking at the leaf blades, dollar spot forms what is known as an hour glass lesion.  Above the disease lesion, the blade will desiccate over time, browning out the turf blade.
