Now is the time to treat for disease of turf. With all the rainfall recently resulting in prolonged periods of dampness to the plant and leaf tissue along with high humidity, the conditions are perfect for turf disease development. We have now treated most lawns with the first round of curative and preventative treatments for brown patch disease in tall fescue.
We are also seeing some dollarspot disease in certain types of bermudagrass turf. If you are seeing patches of wilting or brown turf, please call us as soon as possible to schedule a treatment.
NOTE: It is not recommended you water turf late in the evening as this will enhance the opportunity for disease development. The best time to water is in the early morning hours.
