It will not bring grass back from the dead (meaning turf that has already been attacked by it) , but it will stop brown patch in its tracks.

Yes it will, there are 2 ways to control it. The bacillus subtillus in our compost tea and NPP. The Bacillus subtillus colonies have to be in certain numbers for control so this is a longer term control application.
If you want to stop it right now, the NPP is the one to use

I say that some good compost that starts off with say a 28:1 will make a fine compost if it gets the air it needs and has some wood waste in it for the humates...... just age well like wine for sure

Thank you for the reply Bill. The rust didn't stick around long or affect much turf (confined to two small areas, instead of the entire lawn as usual). If it comes back I might try the NPP. In the last year and a half I have applied two apps of your ICT, two of Aggrand, and two of Milorganite. I believe my shift to less inputs and more organics, are what is helping with reducing the rust, and just as well, should also help it endure the upcoming dry period much better.
