Lawn Disease??

Hi guys,

 

One for the lawn care pros- does it look like a fungal disease in the picture?

 

The area is under a couple of pine trees. It has always struggled but I had it looking quite nice this summer but now these patches are appearing.

What would you recommend? I was going to give it a dose of Iron!

 

Many thanks

      Hi Ken, thanks for your reply!

      I was considering giving it a feed but I was concerned incase it was something more like Fusarium - so the feed might make it worse?! 

      It's due another feed soon so I'll give it a go.

       

      Cheers

    Don't go too high on N at this time of year - it will do more damage than good, leading to more diseases. Needs to be an autumn feed promoting root growth. We're using a 6-5-10+FE as an example.

    Next spring give it a good dose of Nitrogen. Also a preventative fungicide around Mar/April could be a good idea.

      Thanks Andrew!

      I have a similar feed so will go down that route! Would you do a separate iron spray to harden it off? 

      I was thinking of mixing a little seaweed in with the iron??!

       

      Many thanks

    Yes you could do some iron and seaweed as well. We've iron and other bits in the granular formulation so don't need to do a separate spray in the main. A good aeration would help also.

    Seaweed has great anti-fungal properties. A little and often will give it a degree of protection and not least health benefits to fight off any attack.

    A sprinkle of NPK to give grass energy to fight and a dose of seaweed will help......
