With all these overcast skies and dew sitting on the grass all morning, I’m beginning to see Giant Patch illness creep into St Augustine and Zoysia lawns. I used to be going to attempt to get by the season chem-free however am now discovering a have to not less than spot deal with a couple of areas. And that’s the topic of this video, Utilizing LESS CHEMICAL to Management Fall and Winter Garden Illness – Giant Patch I made on YouTube.
The idea right here is that you’re solely treating the contaminated areas and simply outdoors of them in hopes of stopping the illness whereas utilizing minimal chems. This can be a type of “built-in pest administration” which basically means solely utilizing a chemical management when completely essential and while you do, utilizing minimal means for management. I selected to go along with the tried and true “bulletproof technique” which is an utility of azoxystrobin blended with propiconazole. You may see the shop purchased equal in the video How To Repair Brown Patch & Giant Patch In St Augustine, Zoysia and Tall Fescue with The Garden Care Nut.
Garden Illness Management
One factor to level out right here is that liquid concentrated azoxystrobin goes to work higher and sooner than granular this time of yr. The liquid will get proper in the place it must be a lot faster than granular – nonetheless – if granular azoxystrobin (Scotts DiseaseEx) is your solely possibility then it’s higher than nothing.
Additionally, you will see that I blended in some Humic12 – 12% Humic Acid Bio-Stimulant. I wish to stability out the combination with one thing good and a bit of carbon into the soil is rarely a nasty thought.
Is Illness Management Needed?
The reply isn’t any. You do not need to use any illness management in any respect if you happen to don’t wish to. I can 100% promise you that come springtime, any harm from the big patch illness will start to disapear and fill again in by summer season. I’ve seen it time and time once more. Zoysia and particularly St Augustine are tremendous aggressive and if you happen to feed them in spring, they are going to fill proper again in, rapidly.
Nevertheless, simply know that these areas are additionally the place you will see invading weeds like frequent bermuda present up. Any space that’s allowed to lag (akin to a illness spot) will open up the turf to invaders. That’s a part of the idea I used to be getting at after I took a experience across the neighborhood in the video Florida Winter Garden Care Step 2 :: Winter Fertilizer Suggestions.
Can I Nonetheless Fertilize?
The reply is sure for certain! The very last thing you wish to do when your garden is combating illness is cease feeding it. The vitamins utilized are wanted to assist the turf as it really works to endure and ultimately recuperate.
Individuals get tremendous scared about fertilizing when illness is current as a result of they hear every kind of warnings about “fertilizing causes illness” or “an excessive amount of nitrogen causes illness” when the truth is this isn’t the case in any respect. The individuals telling you that aren’t contemplating the complete context of what’s going on. (or possibly you’re studying a college web site and mis-interpreting the context of what you’re studying?)
Assessment the video St Augustine Grass MYTHS Busted // Half 1 to know what I’m getting at.
So you possibly can see that nitrogen doesn’t trigger illness, nonetheless, extreme nitrogen could cause flushes of fast progress within the turf that then permits illness to contaminate the brand new/contemporary tissue and unfold… however… there’s nonetheless one factor that most individuals overlook and that’s the time of yr and what impact it has on the turf.
Proper now, winter, the times are brief and the temps are cooler and guess what that does? It slows the turf down, like a pure progress regulator.
So in actuality, you possibly can blast your garden with nitrogen and it’s not going to develop/flush out fast – it’s not even doable. So as soon as once more, there’s completely no want so that you can be involved about fertilizer having a unfavorable influence in your diseased turf and in reality, it’s simply the alternative.
Feeding your turf is what’s going to enable it to recuperate sooner. (Observe: this assumes your garden is just not dormant – ie: that you’re nonetheless having to mow not less than each 10-12 days or so.)
In the event you do have main illness in your garden, that is the place 7-0-20 Stress Mix shines. Nevertheless, if you have already got 24-0-6 Flagship readily available, that’s superb too. The secret is to maintain that turf fed by winter so it could proceed to stay as vigorous as doable.

“In case you are nonetheless mowing, then you possibly can nonetheless be throwing!”
