    Not sure about any rules, but I know what conditions make it favorable. Here when the night temps get >70 and we have high humidity or PM storms brown patch is a comin'.

    If dollar spot is a problem, your N is too low. A slow, steady supply of N will reduce dollar spot dramatically. If you go too high on N , Mr. Brown patch is coming. If you got it bad, Banner Maxx it!!!!!!

    The 150 rule is for Pythium.
