    Never seen so many yards with dollar spot as this year, I am getting rid of it with fert and fungicide, anyone else having problems with dieseases. Also crabgrass starting to poke its ugly head through, am disappointed in pre-emergent(pendamethlin). Seems to be less effective in yards that haven't been treated before, which is somewhat understandable. Would like to use barricade but very expensive.:hammerhead:

    Been getting some fungus here in Iowa as well. Mostly dollar spot with a few cases of red thread now. Will see alot more in the coming week with high temps in the day and night. Most of my cases are due to sprinkler system not set correctly. Just cant seem to get it through some peoples heads on when the best times to run them are.

    we had a lot of red thread earlier this year, now with the heat and humidity the dollar spot wont be far behind!

    We did a single app of barricade for pre-em, very satisfied with the results in 06.
