What has anyone done to remedy Typhula Blight? Aerate the area? Never had this problem before, I think this is just the result of a large amount of snow melting very slow. Thank in advance. Kevin

Check with your local ag-ext. The master gardener should have some help for you also.

Aerate in 3 directions, run a power rake over the area until you make a seed bed.<br>Spread ryegrass, rake, roll, and apply penn mulch.<p>You have to apply fungicide in the fall to<br>prevent snow molds in the spring.<p>There is nothing that &quot;cures&quot; a snow mold<br>once the pathogen has started.

Kevin, you cannot deal with apparent fungus problems by conjecture. Have you had the problem positively identified? If you have had a sample tested by knowledgeable office or person, and know for sure that you are dealing with gray snow mold, then see &lt;a href=&quot;]&quot;&gt;Snow Mold&lt;/a&gt;, or numerous other extension service sites.<p>In my experience, shorter mowing late in season is the best cultural practice. In 20 yrs, only had one major case of gray snow mold, and that was in a mostly bentgrass lawn.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana<p>
