New thoughts after the challenges of this season.

My TTTF lawns performed very well but had a fungicide app on them.

The KBG was very fickle in the heat and low humidity early in the season.

Two years in a row we saw rain and humidity trigger disease in late July all the way into September. Lower mowing heights and collecting clippings at this time might be beneficial.

Shade lawns that were being watered and doing well in the drought thinned after the rain and humidity came. Light and frequent watering during droughts and not over watering might be called for next year. Might have to change all fertilizing in these area's next year. Organic at the most.

Any lawns with creeping bent were a disaster this year. Must know this in advance and put out a disclaimer to the customer. They blamed the drought stress complex associated with cb on me. It's a weed!

Split apps of preemerge!!!

What are you guys thinking of for next year?
