    Hey Bobby. I offered the service one year (promoted it) and found it was a lot of effort for the payoff. I used liquid but with the number of applications to get control (up to 4 at times) and the cost, I only had one take it (on a customer base of 200). Now granted this was Burlington, IA and probably NOT the highest community with disposable income. I had taken over a business that had believed more nitrogen was better and this is what caused some of my fungus problems. I would get pricing for the major fungicides to handle the big ones and be prepared with the info to quote. I bet most will hope it goes away before too much damage occures after they see the price. Its kinda like grub control. They never want it till its too late and then its expensive to deal with.

    No need for Fungicide. Just apply extra heavy Nitrogen and water just after dark.

    Thank You Green Dreams

    But I only give Proprietary Advice like the above to my good buddies, like Bobby. BTW Bobby add Sahara to you tank mix and you won't have any weeds.
