    Does anyone have recommendations on which fungicides should be avoided on newly, overseeded areas? My tall fescue seed has germinated and most of the seedlings are 1 - 2 inches tall. I have been very careful with irrigation, however I am still getting a little brown patch popping up (I have battled it all summer) on the established turf.

    For instance - Daconil recommends that it should be applied only to established turf. Some of the DMI fungicides can restrict growth when the turf is under stressful conditions, etc.

    Stick with water-based fungicides and you will be fine. I would suggest against using the curative rates, though. Eagle EW & Spectator Ultra (Banner Maxx) are broad-spectrum fungicides that are water-based and have less harmful side effects on turf.
