Brown patch, dollar spot, red thread earlier in the summer

June was hot and humid, especially at night, it set it up perfect

I see lawns all over that are 1/2 to 3/4 brown dead grass, never had a chance

Intersesting though, little to no grubs/beetles this year. I believe I have seen less than a dozen jap beetles this year, normally there are 1000's

Making some great money on these supplemental apps though.

We also went with a organic based 20-1-5 replacing our normal 25-5-10 for round 4.

Don't want to feed the animals.

that 20-1-5, only 7.5% of the N is organic (poop), from what I remember, when I looked into it. Still a good deal though.

We don't normally use these types of products.

We went with a reccomendation from URI for what was best to deal with all the fungus issues we've been having in our area


And of course the price was great.
