Fung-O-Meter is Rising!
Norwood’s Fungus Index Indicates Brown Patch Threat
Our new Fungus Index provides an indicator of when fungus begins to grow and/or thrive. The formula is simple: Fungus Index = Temperature + Humidity. As the Index approaches 150, conditions are prime for fungus growth – in your lawn and elsewhere in your garden.
In the upcoming week, we will surpass 150. Now is the time to prevent various fungal infestations, including the dreaded “brown patch” fungus (Rhizoctonia solani) that loves to ruin our beautiful fescue lawns.
Protect & treat your lawn with a 1-2 Punch:
- Prevent/Maintain – Apply a granular fungicidenow (such as “F-Stop”) to treat/prevent fungus disease for 4 weeks.
- Spot Treat – Spot treat any problem areas with a systemic liquid fungicide if brown patch continues to present itself.
