Question Yellow Turf - Why?

pH is good. Iron - No help. Nitrogen - No help.

I know this is vague… But I figured I had to start somewhere!

Help?

Hard to tell, but it looks to be two different types of grass.

Did you recently seed?

I would guess annual rye, or perhaps poa popping up with the cooler temps.

No recent seeding. Problem is all-Season.

That grass looks too dense. Overcrowding will cause season long yellowing.

Yes, the dark green grass is likely KBG.

But the light green I would venture to say is not KBG, but rather an annual or perennial rye or poa annua.
