Got Brown Patch?

I’m seeing a lot of large (brown) patch just waiting for the turf to green up a bit more and an extended period of wet weather to really get it going. Right now would be a good time to make an application of fungicide to slow it down. It’s on my list of things to do for the weekend!

    What fungicide do you recommend?

    • Don Ferrin says:

      For homeowners, Maxide Dual Action Disease Killer Granules, which has azoxystrobin as the active ingredient. Fungicides that contain propiconazole or myclobutanil are also effective.
