smallaxe is only hard to understand if your just a licensed applicator and not a licensed technician.
Most people get their license so they "can do" applications.
Few get their license because at some point, they're going to "have" to apply something requiring it.
What smallaxe is saying is. A licensed "technician" knows how "not to get" something like Large Patch, but also knows if it occurs there is something to apply that will help to "control" it.
Now a licensed "applicator" pretty much just knows how to apply products. Not how to apply horticulture.
If you don't have a horticultural understanding of the environment. Then you will only always be a licensed "applicator" always applying something other than knowledge and understanding...
