Spring Dead Spot Recovery

Finally, we are seeing some recovery on the fairways where Spring Dead Spot took its toll.  Spring Dead Spot affected our bermudagrass severely in some areas and in others it was sporadic.  We started our recovery this spring by deeply penetrating the soil and alleviating compaction with our new Earthquake.  Recently,  temperatures have been favorable for bermudagrass to sent out healthy stolons and fill the void left by the disease.  The recovery has been accelerated by our applications of extra fertility. We have mapped out all the areas where the disease was present, and this fall we plan on applying a fungicide, for the disease, in hopes of reducing its severity next spring.

Stolons gathering momentum.
