Dollarspot

Too soon. The first dollarspot appeared in my lawn this week. Just a few spots--minor problem--so far.

Warm prolonged rain yesterday--so maybe more fungus infestations will appear in the future. Probably apple scab on crab apple, too.

Low humidity so far in Michigan always a good sign as far as outbreaks. I don't expect a bad year and I treat for a load of different fungus on different items from bent grass to apple trees, spruces, pines et all.



I always like to see low humidity with just enough rainfall and so far this years been just that.

For those that are seeing this are your clients wanting you to treat it or do some want to "wait and see"? I run into this a lot. I am in west TN and seeing dollarspot everywhere in bermuda.

I did not usually treat for dollarspot--and when I did --it did not work well.
But ...my wife wants me to treat my own lawn. Stay tuned.

Dollarspot in bermuda suggests not enough N, K and micronutrients. In low cut grasses, if the weather is optimal, you are going to get it. I like Eagle 20 EW for dollar spot in alternation with 3336.

Bayleton or Banner. Here is the problem I see in dealing with dollar spot in high cut cool season turf. Increasing the N can then make brown patch and leaf spot worse.
