brown patch pretty much eats up fescue here in eastern nc. I stop fertilizing in Feb/March, but it doesn't matter. The heat, humidity, and afternoon thunderstorms will brown out a lawn in hours. It a battle and I'm considering offering a fungicide program which I think would be 3 monthly apps to prevent BP.

I may even do a 2 fall app and 1 spring app on my warm season in an attempt to preven large patch.

Aerify the piss out of the effective areas, Brown patch is basically a root fungus that lies in a vegetative state that will reappear year after year when conditions are right.

The Arena, the Field of Battle, the site where the fight actually takes place is our own heart and all of our Inner Man. The time of Battle is our whole life.
