- Controls fungus-related diseases that destroy healthy lawn turf.
- Fungi adheres to the plant, steals food from and/or deposits toxic substances in the cells of the plant.
- Some types of disease controls are granular chemicals while others are liquids.
- Homeowners who use a mixture of grasses have a better chance of their lawn surviving a disease as most diseases attack one specific type of grass.
- Common types of lawn fungi are snow mold, leaf spot and dollar spot.
- Snow Mold attacks grass any time from late fall to early spring. Grass turns a reddish color or tan to gray. It can destroy small areas or complete lawns.
- Leaf Spot results in brown or black spots on leaves and can occur through a wet, cool fall, winter and spring season. Thinning of the lawn may not be noticeable, but leaf activity is quite pronounced.
- Dollar Spot starts in mid-spring and/or when weather is moist and cool. Damaged spots are a bleached straw color. A cobweb-like growth is a sign the fungus is active.
