    instinctively, start throwing fungicides to the turf when nighttime temps (the lows for the next 24 hours)will be above 60 degree F.<p>best computer model going, that i know of and you cannot beat the price!

    grow tougher plants, in better soil...on a humic program you can reduce fert apps to .25lb sessions and healthy soil keeps fungi in check...check out these humic acids at www.humic.com i use them even to break down clay, fall works best but spring is good too.
