Good thread.

I was told I had an "allergic reaction" to Acclaim. So I won't use it anymore.

Without diving into the details of the case, I am skeptical of the doctors conclusions.

Since there are other products that solve the problems I was using Acclaim on, I simply avoid Acclaim.

I used to work with some tree and shrub guys who worked with Lindane, and that is some repugnant stuff... I don't know if I could work with it.

Aside from those, as long as its registered in my state for use in lawn care applications, I am open to using it.

Well, I know that the tree and shrub guys like to use it. I just don't like the smell.

I do know that some products that we use for turf applications sometimes find there way into other household products too. I can't think of any now but perhaps that would be a good thread also.

here on the east coast we lower the soil ph to 5.8-6.0 and make 3 apps 4 gal per 1000 sq ft. with bayleton fungicide. 1st app goes down about one month before you notice symptoms of the disease then 2 more 30 days apart. Do Not lower mowing height during the activity period and minimize drought stress also.
this will help a great deal with managing necrotic ring spot.
