Disease Alert On All Warm Season Turf Grass

We are seeing an alarming amount of Large Patch Fungus on warm season turf right now.

Large Patch Fungus is a damaging disease on all warm season lawns in the fall and spring. However, Zoysia and Bermuda turf are more susceptible to severe injury. This disease is similar to Brown Patch Fungus on Fescue. Large Patch Fungus needs to be controlled with at least two applications of fungicide in the fall and two in the spring when ground temperatures are between 50 and 70 degrees. Damage occurs before you are aware you have it and is not visible until green-up in the spring. Preventative fungicide applications are the best way to control this disease.
 
Fungicide applications are two times your regular turf application price.
