Mowing and other mechanical operations on lawns does not affect disease very much. In some cases an existing disease spot can be enlarged a little by mowing equipment. Wind and water spread much more fungal spores than any mower.<br>Fungal spores are usually present, waiting for the right circumstances to become active. A disease needs three components: a pathogen, a host and the right environmental conditions to become active. <p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana
