    could be iron chlorosis? We have been getting a lot of that down here GA because of our drought and the excessive irrigation as a result. Here is a nice article I found from a Professor at Texas A&M. I don't know about the method he suggests for clearing it up, but we use a product called Sprint 330, which is a Chelated Iron, at 1lb per acre mixed in the permagreen wet tank.

    With extremely wet conditions and cool nights, you could be having fungus and disease problems instead. Post some pics if you can.

    We get it a LOT here too. Iv'e tried to get answers from many sources and everyone is grabbing at straws for an explination. Iv'e tried many things and am still trying. This year Iv'e applied Milorginite to quite a few lawns (just in the last week) some had the yellow you speak of pretty bad. I'm curious to see what effect it has.
