Injured Zoysia From Ornamec Over The Top
Hi. I used Ornamec Over The Top on my Zeon Zoysia on July 1st (today's date is 8-8-13) and I still have injured brown patches of Zoysia where I spot treated. I used the lower rate of application because it was mid summer hoping to avoid phytotoxicity. I live in Zone 7b in the Piedmont in NC and I have irrigation. I don't think my turf is permanently damaged, but it is very slow in recovering. If I rake around in the brown patches, I can see green Zoysia stolons. My question is, can I apply a starter fertilizer to the brown patches and stimulate their repair? I've definitely learned my lesson and will only use Ornamec in the early spring and just before dormancy. Thanks in advance for your answers.
