I think you've misunderstood the conversation.

If you can't control all the environmental variables to prevent it, well
Spraying preventative and curative apps of chitin for NRS is like wiping with sand paper, yeah it feels like your doing something butt at the end of the day

It's Necrotic Ring Spot that thrives in wet conditions, the turf should not be excessively wet when applying NPP.
And it has been stated several times in this discussion that NPP (which contains chitin) will only alleviate the symptoms. A complete cultural program must be established to reduce/eliminate the cause of NRS. NPP is not a miracle cure.
