What has anyone done to remedy Typhula Blight? Aerate the area? Never had this problem before, I think this is just the result of a large amount of snow melting very slow. Thank in advance. Kevin

Kevin, you cannot deal with apparent fungus problems by conjecture. Have you had the problem positively identified? If you have had a sample tested by knowledgeable office or person, and know for sure that you are dealing with gray snow mold, then see &lt;a href=&quot;http://ianrwww.unl.edu/pubs/PlantDisease/g824.htm#tbgsm]&quot;&gt;Snow Mold&lt;/a&gt;, or numerous other extension service sites.<p>In my experience, shorter mowing late in season is the best cultural practice. In 20 yrs, only had one major case of gray snow mold, and that was in a mostly bentgrass lawn.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana<p>
