Are there any products that will treat established pythium blight on my lawn?
Would aeration be effective at this point or would it just spread the fungus? Definitely pythium as I've seen the cottony, weblike growth in the early morning.
Here are a few tips for getting rid of Pythium Blight:
- Avoid mowing wet, infected turf where mycelium is present to avoid spreading spores with the mower blades
- Reduce thatch and improve drainage with core aeration.
- Increase air circulation and reduce the amount of shade which will limit the amount of time of foliar
- Non frequent deep watering is better verses frequent shallow watering
- Do not water at night.
- Apply Subdue Maxx for chemical treatment
