I like that you say there is a requirement to properly diagnose and that is generally what prompted my question... If you look at browning turf,,, how do you know it is a fungal disease or if it is water stressed???

I never hear of anyone getting a lab test to verify that "brown Patch" is indeed the culprit and very few people even think to check the soil for moisture availability... in fact I'm mocked for even suggesting that dry soil is the likely culprit...

So in the final analysis,,, How do you know for sure,,, what kind of fungi you're actually dealing with??? Again,,, not trying to be contrary, but actually wonder if there is a way to know if a fungi has indeed raided some new seeding...
